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.

Kid and Doll

You showed another shot of this same muddy scene, showing surroundings buildings and what seemed to be part of a handgun. Any chance someone can find it in the archive?

[You can find it in about two seconds by clicking the photographer's name above the photo. - Dave]

Doll Spa

Don't people pay good money nowadays for a mud bath like that? Looks like she's having fun at any rate.

Mud, Mud

Mud, mud, glorious mud. Ever seen a small child who didn't love the stuff? Great picture!
