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.

I take that back, there are two unattended bicycles confidently left by their owners. Try that nowadays!

A Warranty With Some Teeth In It

Above the smoke shop on the left:

"Painless Dentistry, 'All work guaranteed for 10 years."

I wonder if my dentist guarantees his work for 10 years?

Most Stoic Fella

Am I the only one to smoke out the wooden Indian standing on the corner?

What an intriguing neighborhood!

I would love to live here. This reminds me of city scenes in Marx brothers' or Charlie Chaplin's movies.
