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.

A Winsome Lass

We have a Handsome Rake category. Why not start a Winsome Lass collection?. Miss Mullikin makes a fine starting point.

Whatta dog!

---and Miss Mullikin is good looking too!

Photo Studio Wall?

This photo appears to be a portrait done in a professional photographer's studio. The naturalistic scene on the wall in the background is gorgeous, suitably muted so as to not overpower the subject of the photo.

[Harris & Ewing was a prominent photographic studio in Washington, D.C. Among their many many photos we've published here are several which use this studio backdrop, including this one.]

My first thought

Was, "It's the American equivalent of Lady Sybil from "Downton Abbey!" I'm so ashamed of my addiction to that show.

Now That!

Is a very serious collar, Kids! I like the bow they've attached to it. Miss Mullikin does cut a fine figure in her Red Cross uniform. I wonder how she fared.
