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.

Tyke on Trike: 1951

Tyke on Trike: 1951

"Linda - Nov 1951." Last seen here, Linda is now a young lady of 4, old enough to drive. From a batch of 200 Kodachrome slides I got on eBay. View full size.

Looks

Hey, leave poor Linda alone! Some of us just don't photograph well.

Or she just may be dreading going back inside to face another teeny tiny slice of birthday cake.

Moebius Syndrome

Any slide in that eBay batch that can prove otherwise? That blank, disengaged look from that tyke in all the photos so far seem really unnatural.

["All the photos" -- meaning both of them? - Dave]

When Evening Shadows Start to Fall

Linda casts a long one.
