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.

Failure is an option.

The "Super Committee" after failing to cut spending on the Federal Budget. The left hates the right, the right hates the left. We all pay.

Looking at this picture

It just crossed my mind that the turkeys that get a presidential pardon tend to be, well, kind of white.

Sorry for the sarcasm.

And they're all dead now.

Have to be, it's 71 years ago.

So, So Sad

How ironic it is to think about the hopes and dreams of these fowl and to realize that they are all dead now.

Gotta go tell the king

Turkey Lurkey and cronies on a mission to alert His Majesty that the sky is falling.
