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.

Nice Photo

That's a nice photo, well composed, beautiful color. The person who took it appears to have above average skill with a camera. The picture depicts a nice family with kids who should be in their 60's now with families of their own. I don't understand why they would sell these family images on ebay. I just can't imagine doing that.

[The usual reason: Someone died, and there was an estate sale. - Dave]

If It Isn't

Rin Tin Tin.

Sunny and Warm

Oh, this sunny and green photo is just what a Minnesotan needs on a cloudy cold February day! Thanks Dave.

Missing Sign

Spaniels Need Not Apply

Stacked stone walls

Anyone from New England would recognize those very old natural stone walls (which have lasted for centuries) rampant all over New England. I believe Linda's family must have been from around that area.

Ice Age

I would bet that the location of this photo was covered by glaciers during the last Ice Age.
