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.

This One Did Burn Down

The original Casino shown in the post was built in 1903 and destroyed by fire in January of 1928. The Casino that still stands today was constructed in 1929 to replace the original.

An autopsy

An Autopsy was scheduled for a headless, legless corpse found near a New Jersey Atlantic City casino today. Foul play has not been ruled out.
