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.
Vintage photos of:
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.
