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.

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.
