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.
A friend of the family, Mr. Metzler, brought by a pheasant he had shot. Here they both are, on display in our 1957 kitchen, East Aurora, NY. Taken with a Minolta A rangefinder. I like the juxtaposition of the dead bird and the wall art. Our radio is in the background. Here's another photo in this kitchen. View full size.
