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.

Terrible Person That I Am

... my immediate thought was "ventriloquist and dummy."

Remembering real birch beer

Although I am not a botanist (or a Presbyterian) I'm thinking at first glance that those are white birch trees from which the above titled soft drink used to be made on the East Coast. It was my most favorite beverage when I was a kid and it came in three colors, dark brown, crystal and red, it was featured in our favorite Sicilian pizza restaurant as it really complemented Italian food like hot sausage and pepper grinders with its crisp, icy-cold, refreshing zing. The mere mention of it makes me want it all right now, so I will go and eat my yogurt and banana lunch, and use my imagination. Lucky me.

Light blue eyes

This man's eyes seem to have no color at all. Too light.
BTW, he really looks like Christopher Reeve.
