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.

Poor little chick

I remember when I was little they used to sell little chicks and bunnies at Easter time. You know what ended up happening to them! Glad they put a stop to that!!

Dig that crazy chick...

I wonder what that chicken went on to do with itself, where it lived, and when it died...


Still alive?

Just set in place with super-glue...


Do You mean People for the Eating of Tasty Animals?


That thing would be GREAT in a PITA!

I like chicken. I like it

I like chicken. I like it alot.

How far they've fallen

And to think these things used to be dinosaurs...


the only way to get a chick to stay that still for such a long exposure meant that it had to be dead and stuffed...

Child labor!

Child labor!
