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.
Found another stack of vacation pics being thrown out. This is on Prince Edward Island at the Dutch Motel (according to the writing on the back). Not sure if this was a local hunter's trophy, or our vacationers were trying to bring these back as a prize to bring back home. View full size.
