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.

Keeping a Low Profile: 1948

Keeping a Low Profile: 1948

1948. Mooseheart, Illinois. "Activities at Mooseheart orphanage. High school boy and girl in their Cadet Corps uniforms." And their chaperone. Kodachrome by Stanley Kubrick for Look magazine. View full size.

 

I didn't realize

the U.S. had a space cadet corps, guess it must have been in the early 50's.

Still There and still helping kids

Must have won the war for us

I did four years in Marine Corps during wartime and had no idea a man could be so decorated. I'm thinking if he can dodge the chaperone with the nurse he might win another medal.

Hahaha

It took me a minute to spot the chaperone. Love it.

Later that night she said:

"Stop! Dave!"

He began to sing the words to the 1890's classic "Daisy"

The words stayed with Stanley for years. . .

Scram Buddy!

Two's company. Three's a crowd!

Mussolini's leftovers

Looks like the orphanage secured the lad's uniform at Fascist Surplus. He's just missing the cap tassel.

That Lad

Has been very busy.

Best boy

No, not him, but the chap(erone) on the floor holding the light aimed up the wall.
