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.

Today, with the opening of Saving Mr. Banks, you can see the 2013 Hollywood version of the story behind the making of this 50-year-old Hollywood version of the 80-year-old P.L. Travers story.

Beautiful Julie

Beautiful Julie looks nothing like the staid illustrations in the Travers books. This should be an interesting movie!

Ethereal

And she could sing! Wasn't she the original 'Liza Doolittle' in the Broadway production?

What A Spectacular Photograph!

This is, by far, one of my favorites on this site.
