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.

Dottie & Sally: 1951

Dottie & Sally: 1951

Blue Earth, Minnesota. "Sept. 1951 -- Dottie & Sally." One hon and one Dalmatian. Though the dog might look spotty, she's not Dottie, she's Sally. 35mm Kodachrome by posthumous Shorpy contributors Grace or Hubert Tuttle. View full size.

Smelly dogs? Dusty cars?
I see Dottie in a crisp cotton dress with a 1951 breeze blowing through her soft hair.

Slacking Off

Sorry, I didn't think anyone was paying attention. It's a 1947 or 48 Chevrolet Stylemaster.

Made in Heaven

The marriage of Blue Earth and Kodachrome. The images from Blue Earth have become very meaningful to me, stirring emotions and memories of people, cars, clothing, homes, gardens, and especially, colors from the past. Thank you.

Must be a Shorpy record

24 hours and still no one's identified the make and model of that car.


That is an odd white flame painted on the fender.

[That's a reflection of Dottie's dress. - Dave]

Back again

Yay, Sally's back! Do the Tuttles' descendants have any comments to add to these photos?

[Not that we know of, and there might not be any descendants left. Grace had a son from a previous marriage, Donald, who died in 1996. - Dave]

Good Girl

You can't help but smile when you look at Sally.

Not Going To Believe This

Our Sally had the same type of dog collar as this Sally. Did Sally time travel to England by any chance?
