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.

The Egg and I: 1950

The Egg and I: 1950

The little man in the nicely-pressed pants on Easter Sunday is me. Given the state of our lawn, you can see how hiding eggs in it was a snap. View full size.

Are you SURE

you aren't Ralphie's younger brother? The one who came AFTER Randy ("Christmas Story").

This is one seriously cute pic!

The making of a young man

Clearly if you've the sharpest creases in your trousers that'll help you find eggs every time.

Great Easter pic.

Good For You!

In spite of having been a tyke plagued with never-rectified amblyopia, young tterrace has found the egg nonetheless.

Easter Cutie!

tterrence,

That has got to be one of the cutest pictures.

Just Like Easter Candy

This is one sweet picture. Thanks, tterrace.

The reel deal

Didja ever have to cut springtime grass with one of those old reel-type push mowers? Well, didja ever wonder why old timey city yards were so small & full of flower beds & rock gardens? If your first answer was yes, your second one will always be NO.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter to all!!
