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.

A little too quiet

This neat and tidy cityscape reminds me of some of Edward Hopper's paintings, especially those without human activity or with a lone (and lonely) human.

[Giorgio de Chirico. - Dave]

History remains

Statues etc. evoke stories about who the person was, what they accomplished, and why they are deserving of conversation so many years later. We cannot change the past and some of it isn't pretty, but it is what got the lot of us here.
