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.

Sportfish Photos

There are quite a few sportfishing photos from the old days on the internet, featuring the likes of Ernest Hemingway, S. Kip Farrington, and Zane Grey. Problem is they're all too tiny to post here. A shame.
