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.

Canadian Club Quarter

Walkerville was founded by Hiram Walker and it's now part of Windsor, home of Southwestern Ontario's premier ballet.

Tied on one too many?

That power pole may have been installed by workers after they took the Hiram Walker factory tour. Or it's a Republican pole, because that baby is definitely leaning right.
