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.

Sebastien Does it again

Wonderfully use of color here mate. Good job. Especially skin tones, always the hardest in my book.

Makes me want to get back to colorizing again. Been away a while.

A brisk spring afternoon

I could walk right up and buy an apple, maybe chat about how it's still chilly out, considering it's May. Gorgeous work.

First "Flo"

Thought of the current Progressive Insurance spokesperson. I like the job on the color including the feather duster.

Colorizing plaid

Very nicely done to get the blue and brown plaid on the jacket. Solids are easy, plaids are hard. I also like the colors of the apples.
