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.
Vintage photos of:
New York circa 1909. "Broadway -- Saranac Lake, Adirondack Mountains." Revisiting the scene glimpsed earlier here, with the addition of a shy pedestrian. Note the sly signage of "Ernest Crice, hustling newsboy," who cheekily gives his address as "Flatiron Building." 8x10 glass negative. View full size.
