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.

Today's Top 5

13th Infantry

There is a short film clip listed on Internet Movie Database, made in 1897 of "13th Infantry, U.S. Army, in Heavy Marching Order, Double-Time, Governors Island". Presumably the same outfit at nearby Fort Hamilton.

Guess what's on the menu

Do I hear Banjos?

Just Deserts

An old Army tradition, put the screwups in the kitchen.

E. Coli Anyone?

Evidently three military KPs and two civilian cooks, about to debut as a percussion ensemble. The unfinished siding and rough floor provide lots of great surfaces for harboring the various microbes that have traditionally plagued armies. Ah, to be young, sick, and living in B'ooklyn!
