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.

Colorized: Donald and Priscilla Jenne

Colorized: Donald and Priscilla Jenne

Colorized from black & white here. My Grandfather, Donald Dickinson Jenne was born in Rochester, NY in 1891. His family lived in Elgin Illinois at the time, so I can only suppose that they were visiting relatives or traveling back to see family. In 1919 Donald and Gladys Jenness were married in Minneapolis, MN. In August of 1922, their first child, daughter Priscilla Marguerite was born. In July 1923 they posed here at the lake house in northern Wisconsin on Lac Courtes 'Oreilles. His obvious joy in her is so wonderful. Her expression is one she carried with her all her life. A beautiful and direct smile. Priscilla is my mother. View full size.
