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.

Simple Beauty!

You can almost smell the scent of the grass, wafting on the cool crisp air! I'll wager to say this was taken in the morning. Reminds me of being a kid, and that there's nothing better!
