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.

A Man's Legacy

Reason No. 1000 why you should never let yourself be photographed in a little toy wagon being pulled by a miniature donkey: 111 years later that photograph will be posted on a website for millions of people to see, and your legacy for the rest of eternity will be, "Look at that jackass riding in that silly wagon!"

Here's to the Newlyweds!

Their marriage is off to a great start. He's already getting her goat, and she's riding his, um, mule.

Hmmmmmmmm

Nice woman on that ass.

Please, please, please!

Oh, please let Wills & Kate see this pic and get some stunning ideas. I hear they postponed their honeymoon so they could wait until the proper photograph was revealed on Shorpy!

The Beach, Yuck!

It looks like a mixture of trash, butts and animal dung.
