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.

My Dad in Anderson, Indiana, about 1919. Knickers and his hat on sideways. He became an accomplished pilot in the 30's and Marine bomber pilot in WWII. After the war he settled in Southern California. A truly great man.

Pennsy Es on the Horseshoe Curve

Pennsy Es on the Horseshoe Curve

My Dad wasn't really a train fan, so to speak, but we're genetically disposed to appreciate transport in its many guises.

He roamed western Pennsylvania as a field director for the Presbyterian Church and on one of his trips in February 1960, he made a stop at the Horseshoe Curve and recorded this express train headed to points east.
