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.

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
