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.

Seriously? 1908?

I never knew about them until that wretched "Shout at the Devil" song and that was, what, '85 or '86?

Oh wait. Yeah. I see my mistake.

Sorry about that.

(Love all the old pics, by the way. You've been on my RSS feed for months. History rocks! Keep it coming, please.)
