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.

More Marblehead: 1906

Circa 1906. "Union Street -- Marblehead, Massachusetts." On what looks like laundry day. 8x10 glass negative, Detroit Publishing Co. View full size.

 

Toonerville

This foto has an unrealness about it. It looks kind of wopsided, especially the building with the clothes line.

Very well preserved!

Neat As A Pin

No trash or fast food leavings are on this street while every day I go outside to pick up the stuff dropped by slobs in front of my home on Long Island.

I'm worried about the gap in the clothes line however. Great Uncle Ernie lived in Marblehead back then and I fear that a set of lady's bloomers might be missing.

A Marblehead Too Far

Too bad that Marblehead is an eight-hour drive from my house. Based on these old photos, and the present-day view, it would be a wonderful place to visit.

I may just decide to go regardless of the lengthy drive; what the heck!!!
