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.

bad sailor

However, if this an EM club...maybe he is just his units answer to the rebel in us all........... the Chief ain't here, so I'm baaadd!

Are you serious?

Tell ya what: back in the day, when I was a sailor sportin' the "cracker jack," that neckerchief knot had to be right at the V of the jumper; or else! :) The sailor on the right, in the dress blues, is a bit more squared away.

Victrola from 1915 or later

According to the Victor-Victrola page (http://www.victor-victrola.com/IX.htm) this model, VV-IX with feet, wasn't built until 1915.

45 star flag?

Odd that there is a 45 star flag on the wall if this is supposed to be 1918. That flag was valid up until Nov-1907 when Oklahoma,(46th) was admitted to the union. Then New Mexico and Arizona, (47 & 48th) were admitted in 1912.
