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.

western electric

I'm glad you all like it, thank you so much. This took me a little over 4 hrs to do.

great job

I'm very impressed, I think you did a great job right down to the small detail stuff on the desk and tree, can I ask how long did it take you?

NOW it feels like Xmas!

Thank you SO much!

The Colors of Christmas

Nice job, especially considering there are a lot of subjects to work with. But even in color, I still believe the woman standing with her right hand on the young lady's shoulder is Stan Laurel in drag.
