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.

Tall Pipes

Can't help but wonder what the tall pipes adjacent to fire escape ladders from nearly ground level, all the way up to slightly higher than rooftops on Masonic Hall & Furniture building are all about. Some type of vent maybe?

Boo!

So many ghosts

Short life

Apparently this building wasn't around for much longer after this photo was taken.

Crooked carts

Are vegetable carts always supposed to tilt to the side and front? Is that a way to showcase the goods?
