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.

Need help with ID's

I posted this photo in hopes of some assistance with identifying other members of the Wedding Party. I have a strong belief that they were all Lithuanian immigrants living in Brockton's "Village" in Ward 6, Montello section. Shoe workers no doubt. I have four people identified thus far. The Bride was my Grand Aunt and my Grandmother, her sister is there also. Appreciate anyone's help with this. Even if it's just a idea that I can follow up on.
