Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.
Vintage photos of:
New York, 1942. Kathryn Crum, the wife of bandleader Eddie South, in the dental chair. Another of Albert Fenn's uncaptioned photos from the OWI archive. Now, Mrs. South, if you'll just open a little wider, this won't hurt a bit. View full size.
