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.

VINTAGRAPH • WPA • WWII • ABOUT PARIS, 1895

Cologne Cathedral 1947

Cologne Cathedral 1947

Taken for the US Senate Appropriations Committee's photo album of their fall tour of Europe and the Middle East. The photo was taken by Lt. Robert F. Tacey of the Army Signal Corps. View full size.

The Tacey Family

Unfortunately, I was too young to have known your dad back then. Just a little bit before my time. I picked up the photo album from a book store in New Hampshire about 5 or 6 years ago. Your father/grandfather did some wonderful work.

My Dad

This photo was taken by my dad and brought to my attention by my niece. How can I contact photosmadi, you must have known my father from WWII? The other photo of dad with 4 hands is great, I believe we have that in one of our many photo albums. Thank-you for this.

A Great Find

I just stumbled upon this photo. Robert F. Tacey was my grandfather. What a beautiful discovery.
