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.

I wonder

if the Maint Dept won?

C'mon Batman

Buy the kid a decent costume. Thats humiliating. And don't
even get me started on the booties.

Dick Grayson

is utilizing the not-so-well-known "Robin-Phone!"

Scarce resource

Up until the days of cellphones, you would be lucky to find even two landlines on the largest Hollywood sound stages. Anything that required phone communications for support could easily become a bottleneck situation.
