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.

I don't like your tie!

I don't think they were getting personal with your comment Evado.

But I do think tterrace and Dave get a little too snarky once in awhile with their replies.

I think they may be breaking one of their guidelines that states:

•Annoying comments. Which are often attempts to "correct" a previous commenter.

Hi, Mommy!

Well, not actually, but these girls are my mother's age.

Old Stack

The magazine (as noted by davidk) was from April, but the Weekly News Review (looking quite pristine) is dated February 1st. Something tells me the entire scene is staged.

[They're posing, not fabricating a spurious activity. -tterrace]

[When I was a kid in grade school, we had a shelf of National Geographics going back at least 10 years, and Weekly Readers that were over a year old. What a nonsensical comment. - Dave]

Well, thanks for making this personal. I don't like your tie! As someone who has worked in and with the media, it was an honest comment. Sorry you disagree.

[Well maybe I was a little grumpy there. -Dave]

Beecham in Seattle

Perhaps the girls should take as their subject the TIME cover man's then-current stint as music director of the Seattle Symphony.

Sir Thomas Beecham
