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.

Isn't It Odd ...

that we can become sexually aroused by people who are dead now? But once upon a time, long before any of us existed, these people were young, full of life, vitality and sensuality. Have you ever looked at your wife, husband or "significant other" and seen through their skin to their skeletons? Life - and the nature of life - is strange sometimes. You're left to wonder if it isn't just a big illusion, after all.

[Odd, yes. And then some. - Dave]

Their feet?

What the heck are they wearing on their feet? Rolled up socks? Special rowing shoes?

Hot guys

Of course they're hot, standing out in the sun on a hot deck you'd be too!!


Some of those guys are hot! And they aren't wearing underwear either.

Seriously though. I wouldn't want to get into a fight with any of them. They look like they could be ruffians.
