About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Studio horses?

I was 8 when my family would not miss an episode. Seeing the tops of the set makes an old favorite look so fake.

Doesn't look enough room

to swing a cat, never mind ride a horse!


I can't think of a television actor I liked and admired more than James Garner. Other girls my age were in love with James Franciscus, or Richard Chamberlain or maybe Steve McQueen (in Wanted: Dead or Alive), or young Michael Landon in Bonanza. But I was crazy for James Garner. The Rockford Files is still at the top of my all time favorite TV show list. So sad to hear of his passing.

Shades of Bonanza

I never liked it when they filmed Western scenes indoors.
