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.

Great

I'm really surprised I've never seen this before. The picture is so compelling both on the surface, and its depth.

Print

There are now links below the image for purchasing prints.

If It's Of Any Interest...

The complete name of the movie on the poster (partially hidden by shadow) is "Feud Of The Range"

How do I purchase a print of this?

I really love this photograph and would love to purchase a print.

Do you know how I can get one?
