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.

Blossom

This is the episode where Blossom and Six go back in time while doing a project in their History class...

Obvious pun aside

I love pictures like this where you can see the hand knitted clothes and the different textiles. I am not sure why but I find being able to see the details fascinating. Is that a cameo pin or necklace that the nurse is wearing?

Pile On

I would have labeled it "Concrete Children." Oh wait . . . the lack of an associative double meaning may have rendered it un-funny.

Good job, Dave.

Well gosh.

It is a complete and utter mystery!

Stepkids

Dave you crack me up!

Concentrate

Maybe if you stare at it long enough.

Step Children

Any explanation for the label? The lady appears to be a nanny or, perhaps, a nurse but "step children" puzzles me. Thanks.

[Hmmm. That is a puzzler, isn't it. - Dave]
