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.

This is simply gorgeous. So well done!

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.
