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.

Tiny Ten: 1925

Tiny Ten: 1925

Washington, D.C., circa 1925. "Sibley Hospital babies." Now what did we do with that box of cigars? National Photo Company glass negative. View full size.

 

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]

Maybe

Decuplets?

Hope they were wearing name tags

"Gee Blanche, Junior sure looks different."

Cozy

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?
