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.

Car ID

1936 Chevrolet.

Buck Season in Pennsylvania

Next week, the week after Thanksgiving, is the first week of rifle deer season in Pa. Only the car model (now most likely a pickup truck) will have changed when this scene is repeated hundreds more times.

It's all groovy

The Remington Model 14 had 12 widely-spaced grooves in the forestock, as does the one in the photo. The Model 141 had 25 narrowly-spaced grooves. Also, the front sight on the 141 was a bead ramp style.

I wouldn't be surprised

if his name was Elmer J. Fudd.

The Rifle

is a Remington 14 or 141 carbine - probably a 14, as the similar 141 was produced only from 1935 on, and in small numbers.

Shhh, be vewy quiet.

The Wabbit was too clever so he had to settle for Deer.
