About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Conception

This was just nine months before the birth of their beautiful, curly-haired son. At the time of the picture, they seemed to have absolutely everything. Less than three years later, I'm sure they would have given it all up, gladly, just to have their baby back.

Vega Indeed

It's an early Vega.

Vega?

On a different subject: does anyone recognise the plane? It looks like an early Lockheed Vega (without the NACA cowling).

WOW!!!

In response to the run-on sentence, all I can say is, "WOW"! Do you have your tinfoil hat on and your windows covered?

Conspirators

Or the Rand Corporation! Or the Reverse Vampires!

Kidnapping

The writer of the previous post undoubtedly didn't sign a name to it for fear of reprisals from the conspiracy of the Government, big business, the Elders of Zion and the guy on the grassy knoll.

No kidnapping

Their baby was not kidnapped, they did not want it because of abnormalities and claimed it was kidnapped and they even let an innocent man be punished for it !!!!

THEY ARE NOT HEROES !!!!
