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.

Beatrice Baxter Ruyl

She was a well-known children's book illustrator and photographic model.

Lovely portrait

Such a wonderful capture.

Love it!

Her profile reminds me so much of Elizabeth Hurley...

Wow, Indeed

She's astonishing, a day after I first saw this I'm still at a loss for words....

Out Of Time

This picture looks as if it were taken yesterday. Somehow, she has a loose, comfortable, contemporary look and feel about her that's not seen in many pictures from this era. This is truly an amazing picture.


Beautiful. Photo and woman.
