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.

Zion: 1971

Zion: 1971

My father and his sister traveled to Illinois from California with my great grandparents for my grandpa's wedding. This was taken on the trip back to Los Angeles through Zion National Park. My dad wishes the camera, a Kodak Brownie, could have caught the car in focus but I think it's cool like it is. View full size.

Photography time lapse

I find it funny that when this photo was taken, the photographer probably thought, "shoot, I've got this stupid car in there." But given time, the car is what makes this photo interesting. It gives it personality and a place, of which it wouldn't have without the car.

It's all a blur

The Mustang at speed is what makes this photo cool.


The Ford Mustang has such distinctive lines, that even when it's blurry like this, it's not difficult to recognize. I'm glad metallic blue paint is no longer popular. There was something about it that I always thought looked tacky.

1967 Mustang?

Nice photo--I like the blurring myself. I'll guess the car is a 1967 Mustang coupe:

I think it's a

'68 Mustang
