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.

Satellite Dishes?

Anyone know what the satellite dish-shaped gizmos on the upper-right corner balcony area are? Lightning related?

[They're still there today, doing their silent duty. Which is purely decorative.]

Cool, I had never noticed those things before. I guess the picture is more hi-res than a real life visit.

Maintenence Headache

I remember over the years the minarets were always a maintenence problem. It seemed they were always scraping and painting on them. Finally several years ago they gave up and put on new metal skins, similar to what they did to the Statue of Liberty I guess.

Up for debate

A timely location tonight.

Now Plant Hall

Now known as Plant Hall, home of the Henry B. Plant Museum on the University of Tampa campus.

Nah - can't be!

Is that a one horsepower riding lawn mower on the left?

[Could be!]

Wow - and one can fertilize the grass at the same time!
