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.

The Ring

I've seen small signet rings before and wondered who wore them. Young boys, perhaps? He has such a bright, smiling face that really speaks of spring.


And, being all boy, he has a nice big scar in the middle of his forehead, probably from tripping and falling while running full tilt.

re: Bunny Boy

That is very true. He is also wearing a very nice ring on his right hand, I can't tell what it is though.

Bunny Boy

This little boy is wearing a handsome wool tweed suit with leather buttons, short pants and knee socks. It used to be a rite of passage when boys received their first pair of long pants. This is a great photo for this boy's descendants to treasure. I don't know the National Photo Company's policy for distribution of their photos, but I hope this boy's parents received a print!
