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.

Vintage photos of:
February 1961. FAPEX, the First Annual Philatelic Exhibition, set up in my bedroom. Obviously taken before opening, as otherwise the exhibit would be obscured by the throngs attending. Or maybe this is one of those time exposures where all the people were moving. Anyway, my stamp collection, enhanced by my 15-year old delusions of grandeur. I still have the stamps, but I wish I had the goose-neck floor lamp and Rocketeer-style illuminated globe. I am still using that bedstead, however, every night. 127 Ektachrome slide.
Oh; there was no Second Annual Philatelic Exhibition.
