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.

Cherub Toes

Interesting position toddler Dunn is able to hold his (her?)left foot in. Don't think I could do quite that much of a foot curl even at that age.
Pre-Photoshop hand drawn wings are a bonus. Guess they are drawn on the negative, not scratched on it, because I am guessing they would be dark if the emulsion were scratched away.

Why am I dressed up like this

with nowhere to go?

No smiles

She(?) doesn't look too happy about the new year.

Changing the calendar page doesn't change the problems.
