About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

A man and a mannequin

The boy looks plastic.

Terrible Person That I Am

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

A Gentle Reminder

If you are uploading pictures with your comments, please read and heed the instructions, highlighted in yellow, that appear right in front of your nose when you click "Upload an image." They mean what they say!

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.
