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.
Vintage photos of:
October 23, 1914. "Clark." I just know there's someone out there who can tell us exactly who this is. View full size. 5x7 glass negative, George Grantham Bain Collection. [Update: Clark (actually Clarke) was, in the words of the New York Times, the "brilliant freshman quarterback" who played for Brown University against Cornell at the Polo Grounds on October 24, 1914. No first name though.]
