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.

Montreal, 1967. This shot was taken using 35mm Kodachrome with the camera resting on a railing.

Today, the U.S. pavilion still stands as an indoor arboretum. View full size.
