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.
Indianapolis, 1977. My youngest Brother Jim had a $6 Million Dollar Christmas. Here he has Steve Austin, the 6 Million Dollar Man, stored in the Bionic Transport and Repair Station.
I expected to embarrass him with this image at our family gathering this summer but instead I found Steve Austin and and his repair station in my niece's playroom! Jim had gotten these toys out of storage just months ago.
