About the Photos

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.

Vincennes: 1941

July 1941. The Old Cathedral in Vincennes, Indiana. View full size. 35mm nitrate negative by John Vachon for the Farm Security Administration.

 

Vincennes 35 chevy

What are the odds the car is a 1935 Chevrolet Master 5 window coupe they are a rare car today because the body was wrapped around a wood frame and the wood rotted away and the car was junked. Here's mine, made into a hotrod.

Vincennes, Indiana

So, why not change the capture Dave? The link proves it is Indiana, isn't it?
Alex, the "state freak" (so not: "steak frites (french fries)" lol

That's Vincennes, INDIANA

The Old Cathedral was recently restored (at great expense) and looks fabulous!

My wife and I would have been married in that church had it not been getting its previous painting in January of 1971.

This is Joe Manning. The Old Cathedral still stands. See all about this church and parish here.
