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.

Today's Top 5

Oooops!

Innovative use of a large format camera here. Linhof Kardan I reckon: it gets very dark in the corners of those viewfinders. I imagine there would have been very fruity language used when this was spotted in the darkroom the next day!

Are the mobile lounges still at Dulles?

Used to ride in them when I'd go through Dulles from 1987-1992.

Too Sterile

A perfect example of Saarinen's sytle....boring and antiseptic....

Makes you appreciate the USS Brooklyn....for a battleship, it had style
