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.

Nice "Favorite Year" reference!

That's all. I just wanted to let you know that your reference to "My Favorite Year" made me chuckle. It took me a couple of minutes to place it.

Rabasa brothers

Hello. Does anyone have more pictures about Emilio Rabasa or his brother Ramón Rabasa? -- Mr. Molina


Now THOSE are silly hats.

NYT Links

Interesting links. I wonder if anyone took a picture of the "Picturesque Aztec nurse"...

Mexican Crisis

This was taken during the time of the Niagara Falls Peace Conference concerning the "Mexican Crisis" (Mexican Revolution -- Huerta/Zapata/Villa, etc.)

NY Times Link 1
NY Times Link 2

Hopefully those links link will work for a while. If not, query the NY Times site for "Huerta Delegates Arrive in New York" and "Delegates Silent on Huerta Offer."
