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.

Doggy backtalk

If you had to get your picture taken dressed like this, you'd look like a real "you-know-what" too!

Remember:

"There's no need to fear, Underbite is here!"

How did your date go with Mr. Lecter?

Why Dogs Bite People

That was the title of a series of pictures of dogs in really stupid costumes that I got last week. This could be included just for the look on this "lady's" face.

Awww

There's that puppy wuppy again. Such a good doggy. Although you were a bit more manly with the cap and pipe.

Can't fool me!

That's Tommy Atkins in drag!

Grandma!

She looks a little like my grandmother, God rest her soul. There's a lot of love in those eyes. And a little aggravation with uncomfortable undergarments. I could be projecting, though.
