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.

After You've Gone: 1935

After You've Gone: 1935

Washington, D.C., 1935. "NO CAPTION." Yet another nameless notable whose fame did not outlast her photo, and a reminder that, after we take that big black train from Union Station, 99.9 percent of us will eventually be completely and utterly forgotten. Harris & Ewing glass negative. View full size.

Colleen Moore?

Am I the only one who thinks this looks like Colleen Moore? She looked a lot like this in the '30s.

Super rare

Common back then, ----virtually nonexistent now, (even in museums) is the 1936 Checker Cab in the background


As long as my friends clear my browser history, I'm cool with that.

Here is REAL test

For identifying the person

New Daily Affirmation?

Never had one. May as well consider your uplifting "No Caption" caption. It is solid truth.

Stylish Lady and Her Car

We might not know the lady's name, but her car is a 1935 Pontiac sedan. Those of us old enough will recognize the "Body By Fisher" emblem just behind the front fender. Usually found on the door sills, but here mounted outside.

The Fisher family started out building wagons in the 1880's and moved into building auto bodies by 1909. Before their acquisition by General Motors in 1919, Fisher Coachworks built bodies for a number of different automakers including Ford, Studebaker, Cadillac and Packard. Fisher was dissolved into other GM divisions in 1984.
