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.

Oh, my

Goodness graceless.

Could've passed as a mobile home

Except for the sprinkler heads, it definitely has that look about it.

Twin beds

Twin beds in the master bedroom? How modest. And are the walls made of prefab panels?

So comfortable!

The lamps are not appealing to me, but the rest of it---cushy stool, and all else clean and organized and tidy and refreshing. I'm sitting here in a pile of clutter, too buried in homework to have time for housework, and wishing I had this room. I guess it's motivation to graduate so I can have time and money to redecorate.


Goose-neck lamps: the ultimate in modernity.

The Honeymoon Suite
