About the Photos

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.

The Deer Hunters: 1908

Deer hunt at Wyndygoul circa 1908. View full size. G.G. Bain Collection.


Boys Life

See Boys' Life for August 1912, Page 31, for The Capture of Wyndygoul and at Page 12 for A Connecticut Deer Hunt.

Deer Tracks

Second from the left has a special "deer track makers" on his shoes, so the other boys can "hunt" for the deer. It's one of the games the boys can play. Saw it in the 1911 Boy Scout Manual.

It's a good thing

you made that clarification; "cloth. Stitched & stuffed". I thought that they might have just 'bagged' an Elks club statue. BPOE!

He Can't dance

The 2nd kid from the left can't dance because he has no sole.

Deer hunt

Isn't that a fake deer the boy is carrying? Looks like an inflatable deer.
