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.

Re: Stunning Colourisation.

I agree with UKGEORGE's comment wholeheartedly. I personally think that Dennis Klassen's submissions continue to set the standard for those of us that practice the "verisimilitude" style of colorizing. I would add that for both those that enjoy viewing colorized photos and those that colorize photos that have not looked at all of his work submitted in the past then I would suggest clicking on his "Name" and then "Track" and enjoy. It was his "Set A Spell" that I first viewed as a new member that got me inspired/hooked on what has become a very enjoyable pastime.

Stunning colourisation

Absolutely brilliant work, Dennis.
