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.

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!

Someone please call P.E.T.A

Someone please call P.E.T.A (just kidding :)
