About the Photos

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) in 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 "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.

Something Looks Familiar

I had an great-uncle that looks very much like that fellow on the left. He would have been 21 years old in 1936. My grandparents ran a boys' home in Jackson County, Ohio around this time period so I'll have to poke around to see if it might be him.

Cheer up son,

you still have WWII and the Draft to look forward to.

Just add water

The East River, specifically, and you'll have the Dead End Kids.

Or is it a woodshed?

These boys look like they were caught by their father smoking one of his cigars. "Git out back and git me a switch, young 'un"

And in 6 years

they will probably become part of the "Greatest Generation."

Of Mice and Men

The early years.
