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.

Red Raven (S)plits

From a 1937 Life Magazine ad:

"Red Raven Splits Laxative Water. For the morning after...only Red Raven Splits will bring you back. Red Raven Splits did the trick before ready for you now at every fine hotel, club, drug store, grocer."

The Witch house still stands

The Witch house still stands and especially at this time of year remains a quite popular site to visit.

Looks like I've been here before

Wow. It's deja vu all over again.

I like this picture from the front, over either of the side views
