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.

3 Hour Tour

Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale...


What memories. Our family, wife and three children, camped at the state park located on Lake Charlevoix and explored the area. The Loeb estate is on the south shore of the lake. Their son murdered Bobby Franks and was murdered himself while in prison. Charleviox and all that area is beautiful. Will have to get up there this fall and see it again.

Nick Adams

"It's good when the fall storms come, isn't it?"

"It's swell."

"It's the best time of the year."

I never get tired of reading those Nick Adams stories. I saw Hemingway's boyhood home a few weeks ago in Oak Park...sort of made a detour/pilgrimage on the way to a wedding reception.

Fire in the Hold

If the harbor patrol saw something like this coming in now, they'd send out the fire boats to greet it.

Looks like there's going to be....

a three-day blow. Well, Wemedge?
