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.

But will there be bike racks?

Some good news about this building.


I am looking at the connection to the other building on the right and wondering if that is part of the construction or is the tall one an add-on?

Time was

Beautiful ornate buildings and no locks on the bicycles. What happened, America?

[Someone eventually invented the bike lock. - Dave]

Parking problems.

Hopefully they'll install the bike racks soon.


Looking through the lobby windows and the debris outside it appears to look like the lobby is being remodeled.

[Actually they're building the building. - Dave]

I Don't Blame Her

I wouldn't want to be pulled into the surf either when wearing a wristwatch and in shoes with high heels (Cuban heels?)

[Which window is that? - Dave]
