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.

Good call mad4books they do call it wainscoting. Also the woodwork is not what you would see in a gym today.

He looks...


But even better-looking to me than Cy is the woodwork behind him...the baseboards, the vertical wood trim on the corner, and the wainscoting (is that what it's called?).

My house already HAS a scrappy man; what it needs now is cool woodwork...
