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.

Today's Top 5

Blood poison cured

Hoyt's Poisoned Blood Cure. (Indianapolis News, 1904)

Or, if you prefer:

Syphilis and blood poisoning cure from a celebrated Indiana physician. Be cured in the privacy of your own home. (And it's free!)

Big Blocks

The building to the far left looks to have been built for the ages. I estimate the stone blocks used in its construction are at least two feet by four feet. About the size of the blocks in an Egyptian pyramid.

Poor old thing

Changed its name several times (The Metropolitan/Park/Park/Lyceum/Strand/Park/Capitol Theater), then was killed off by the talkies.
