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.

Vintage photos of:
Photo stamped on back "Photograph by Associated Screen News Limited, Banff Springs Hotel, Banff, Alberta" with a handwritten "Sept. 1941" above. Original print measures 13 1/2 x 10 3/4 inches, with a hard-to-scan matte finish.
I did some minor digital cleaning (dust and creases) and converted from faded sepia to grey for better contrast. Found at a Northeast Ohio flea market in a box of old pictures and purchased for $1. It was simply an interesting pre-war photo with great scenery, people, and clothing; take special note of the John C. Reilly -like mug front and center. I bet he was a character! View full size.
