Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including, but not limited to, "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.
Vintage photos of:
Washington, D.C., circa 1923. "Addressograph, 11th Street." I had written this off as too moldy to post, then saw the horse parked among the cars and baby parked in front of the fur store (is one baby-sitting the other?) and decided they deserved their 15 minutes of fame. National Photo glass negative. View full size.
