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.

October Magazines: 1905

Toledo, Ohio, circa 1905. "Post Office on St. Clair Street." 6½ x 8½ inch dry plate glass negative, Detroit Publishing Company. View full size.

 

St. Clair Street in the 1990s

During the 1990s I worked at the A. H. Jamra company on St. Clair Street. It was a large brick building with wood floors and exposed wood beams. The company was a Candy & Tobacco wholesale distributor. I would be there for a month or so at a time each year. There was a post office on St. Clair Street near Jamra and I am wondering if this is the same post office of 1905.

Losing season

Just wondering...

How did the Mud Hens do that year? Their record must have been published in one of the October magazines advertised here.

Very little left.

Unless I missed the mark the only thing left is the church on the right.
