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.

Foot board and base are fixed, benches and frame they're on roll back and forth/rise and fall on that curved track visible above the rearmost wheel at the right. Kind of an interesting design but seems like it would be awkward because of the height to the "floor."

Kittatinny House

Kittatinny House was a large resort hotel. Opened on June 20, 1872, it boasted electric lights, elevators, steam heat, running mountain water in every room, a telegraph office in the hotel and its own orchestra. It was constructed of wood. Yep, in 1931. To the ground.

Rock and Roll?

Trying to determine if the four-seated device rocks, rolls or is tethered.
