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.

That kid is my double

I was born in 1958, and I still have a head full of red hair. Unfortunately I still have about nine years to collect Social Security.

Not quite old

This young man would have been about seven in 1965 judging from the missing baby teeth, making him about 57 now - too young for Social Security and Medicare. Chances are good that he's still around, but I wonder if his hair is still red.


Pulitzer Prize submission!

Tempus Fugit

Pretty good bet, Red Semenya, if he's still with us, has been collecting Social Security checks lately.

A little of both

Opie Doody.


If Kim Kardashian broke the internet, this fella broke the Kodachrome.

Mystery Solved

Ron Howard is a twin.

O M G ! !

It's me or Howdy Doody or Ron Howard.
