Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Another Dreamland photo that intrigued me. I just had to explore in color. This time it's the "Luna Park" part of Dreamland. Note the shadows, they are sharp and dark. The angle indicates this photo was taken in the early evening hours. This photo took me a while but proved to be a lot of fun. View full size.
