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.

Minneapolis Bound

Minneapolis Bound

My Great Grandma Rae Keavy, who was married to Jack Keavy, a member of the Minneapolis mob. The date on the photo is unknown, but probably sometime in after 1925. View full size.

Nice Photo

Rae was my Great Aunt..... I spend a lot of time with her when I was young. I was with her when she passed away in 1960.

unknown date

We have a lot of other pictures of her on cars around this time frame, only one has the year 27 visible on the plate, but its a different car so the 28 is possible.

Date?

Fiddling with the image in Photoshop, it appears that the license plate shows an upper-case E or perhaps B over 28, then, in larger type, 96-M. The balance of the plate is hidden by her coat.

If the 28 is correct, and indicates the year, then it ties in nicely with your dating of the photo as sometime after 1925.

I tried to read the label on that bottle, but no joy.
