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.

A Part of Jazz History

"The Central" has been the Deer Head Inn for many years now. In addition to still operating as a hotel, it is also one of the oldest continuously operating jazz venues in the country.

Mexican Souvenirs?

I always go to PA when I want Mexican items.

How poplar was this place?

The siding is made of tree bark shingles, probably from poplar trees, as its bark is among the easiest to work with.

I found the place this was taken

Route 611, just before you enter the village heading north. The grass shack appears long gone, but the distinctive railings on "The Central" are still there.

This kind of gives me the warm fuzzies - its not too far from my stomping grounds where I grew up.

By any other name ...

Perhaps we ought to have been calling that style "Appalachian" rather than "Adirondack" all along?
