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.

There's plenty of material available on these subjects which can be obtained from the government." View full size. Medium format negative by Ann Rosener for the Office of War Information.

 

'America, The Party's Over'

Is there any way to get an enlargement of that document she's holding? It should be legible, but it's maddeningly impossible to read.

Gostosa!

Olha, pena que é de 1942, se fosse de hoje...
Um "coisão", dava um caldão!!

Nice

I sure wish women dressed like this these days.
