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.

Re: Slow down

Lying on the road. Not "laying."

Slow down!

Are those speed bumps laying on the road or did Batman just leave the Batcave?

Woodland at 32nd Today

Woodland and 32nd. Click to zoom.

Washington Monument

That property corner marker labeled "LOT 1" is the biggest monument I've ever seen a surveyor use. We have a piece of rebar poking up half an inch out of the ground on each corner of our lot.

Would cry

Speakin' of cryin', I would do so with delight if someone out there could produce a photo that shows what this sylvan intersection looks like today. Thank you.

Woodland & 32nd

That corner's crying for a 7-Eleven.
