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.

Still Going Strong

That fountain is still there, still going strong, in the courtyard of what is now Flagler College. The Hotel Ponce de Leon was only open from January through April, so no worries about the attire. It does get chilly in St. Augustine in January/February. The patrons all escaped to the northern resorts in the summer months.

Warm

Basking here outside of Boston in the high humidity and warm temps, I can't help but pity those gentlemen in their dark clothing, coats and ties. It's probably a good thing Tommy Bahama and Jimmy Buffett haven't been born yet.
