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.

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?

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!
