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.

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.
