This website is an incredible resource for some great photographs at moderately high resolution. For example here's a link to a set of publicity shots taken by Eric Schaal in 1943 of Woody Guthrie for the release of his book Bound for Glory: click here for website

The first photograph shows Woody playing for some regular patrons of McSorley's Ale House, on Manhanttan's lower Eastside, which still looks exactly the same in 2010. Other photographs in the set show Woody performing on a subway, on a commuter train, for children in a park, for African Americans in a club, and on the street. The publishers dressed him up special in a seaman's hat, fisherman's sweater, and peacoat but Woody provided the cigarette dangling from his lips and the sign on his guitar saying "This Machine Kills Fascists."

I may even order one of the enlargements of this photograph, suitable for framing.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

Hmmm? Now the link above doesn't work but here's the general link: click here for website

Then search for "Woody Guthrie" or whatever interests you.

is there any way to print out pages that we are especially interested in?

Another alternative would be to search Google Images with Woody Guthrie 1943 and find the photos that way. Many of the images you will see are directly linked to the Life Magazine website.

Yes, here's another attempt to link directly to the Woody Guthrie digital images: click here for website

Hope it works this time!

Sometimes internal links don't work.

The last link only yielded two photo results. If you click here you'll see the Google Images search results and all the photos linked to either LIFE or life.com which can then be clicked on individually.

Great photos, I must say.

I do find the links puzzling. This link (14 Jan 11 - 10:45 AM) provides the best resolution image with full credit to photographer, date, and original caption. Some of the other websites provide lower quality images or no info.
