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.

Reese's Pieces: 1924

Reese's Pieces: 1924

April 1924. Washington, D.C. "Miss Reese." No first name given, but Miss Reese seems to be a minimalist. National Photo Co. glass negative. View full size.

 

A bright future

Miss Reese eventually found her niche in the novelty lamp business.

Her Left Foot

I think we can spy Miss Reese's left leg in the mirror, but I agree, we would like to see more.

Not Della

I think that Miss Reese was probably a dancer or was involved in gymnastic pursuits. She is very lithe and slim, even for a '20s girl.

I Stopped

Even thinking about doing something like that 50 years ago.

Uni-ped?

Miss Reese is quite the attractive lass, but the photographer could have taken her picture from a slightly different angle, just to show her best features, her legs! (Both of them.)
