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.

Where is the definition of whatnot. http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/whatnot

Pretty common word in Indiana and Illinois. I always assumed it was standard english. Is it not?

I Wonder too

I wonder what a "and whatnot" is?

It looks like this girl really wants to learn, you can see the teacher student connection, is this Hine or is my impression right?
