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.

Kiwi-Haw: 1905

Kiwi-Haw: 1905

New Zealand circa 1905. "Eight young men in ragtag clothing with hats, pots, broom, shovel, accordion, pipes, gun and dog. Sumner, Christchurch." Five of these fun-loving hayseeds are the Myrtle Campers from this post. Glass negative by Adam Maclay, Alexander Turnbull Library. View full size.

Today's Top 5

The Rifle

is a Flobert, a popular, inexpensive gun made in Belgium. At one time, "Flobert" was a generic term for "beginner" rifles.

Handsome rakes

The one in the stripes has me mesmerized and some of the others aren't bad, either. I love these New Zealand photos. Are there any that show the Maori?

Belt Buckles 2

Those are British Enfield Snake buckles. It's an old military design and had been around a long time by the time of this photo. Those buckles were common imports to both the Confederate and Union Army during the Civil War.

Belt buckles

Interesting belt "buckles". At least four of them have the same style. Anything to this?
