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.

The Fabulous Fabbies

The Fabulous Fabbies

The office staff of the DuPont "Fabrikoid" factory in Newburgh NY in the 1920s. The facility, known locally as "The Fabby" made coated fabrics, some of which were dubbed artificial leather by the company. My Dad, a recent high school graduate, stands at the far left. He worked for DuPont for 44 years. View full size.

My Grandmother worked in the office

Great photo. My grandmother worked in the DuPont office for many years. The second lady from the left may be her. My father and uncle also worked for Dupont for many years. I worked there from 1972 to 1978.

Some flappery clothes

Dad looks proud to be & love the view of all the period clothes, but the short skirted plaid blonde is espescially nice.
