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.

Babes and the Baron

one of the signs says "babes and the baron, now playing". this play opened on december 25th, 1905 and closed on january 27, 1906 at the lyric theatre. so this means this picture had been taken between those dates. interesting! another thing is that "the house of silence" that played in the savoy theatre only played 7 times then closed in the same month! it opened on jan. 23rd. i thought that was funny.
