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.

Meet the Hazels: 1916

Meet the Hazels: 1916

Nov. 10, 1916. Vicinity of Bowling Green, Kentucky. "Hazel family (very poorly educated). Children have not been to school this year although living within 1½ miles of school." View full size. Photograph and caption by Lewis Wickes Hine.

 

Lewis Hine Project

I am always interested to read up on the people identified in the photos, especially those interviewed by Joe Manning. Thanks so much for your terrific work.

Meet The Hazels: 1916

This is Joe Manning of the Lewis Hine Project. I have finally completed my story about this family. I interviewed a son of the baby in the photo, a daughter of the tall girl in the center of the photo, and a daughter of an older girl who was not in the photograph. The Hazels owned their farm. Tragically, the father (standing just to our right of the window) died only five months after this photograph was taken. The mother (at left) died 25 months later. You can see the entire story, plus many photos, at www.morningsonmaplestreet.com/hazelfamily1.html

Meet the Hazels 1916

This is Joe Manning, from the Lewis Hine Project (www.morningsonmaplestreet.com/lewishine.html). I have identified this family and communicated with numerous descendants, none of whom was aware of this or the other four Hine photos of this family in the Library of Congress. My research was helped considerably by an article (at my suggestion) in the Bowling Green Daily News. See http://bgdailynews.com/articles/2007/10/07/news/news5.txt
