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.

Yo!

"Yo-leven"!

Not Convinced

The winning 4H'er and the crap shooter are definitely similar in dress and looks, but I think they're not the same.

Biggest tell is the hat, clearly different. Each of these fellers has his style.

Buttons on the shirt appear to be different colors and the collar looks just a bit different. Finally, the hair on our clean cut 4H'er looks more closely cropped than that of the decadent gambler.

As much as we can see of the face, though, looks very much the same, maybe a more worldly older brother.

[Definitely not the same hat or shirt, although the pimples seem to match. - Dave]
