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.

Is that you, Dad?

Do you have a month and day for this photo? My dad was born at Sibley in 1925. I wonder if he might be one of these babies.

[We barely have a year. - Dave]



Hope they were wearing name tags

"Gee Blanche, Junior sure looks different."


Max, I think the babies would feel secure and cozy next to each other.

Baby boomlet?

What possible reason could there be for this arrangement? Was there a mini baby boom at the hospital?
