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.

Two blocks down Virginia St. from the corner of First we see the second version of the "Reno Arch," this one installed in 1963 and replaced with the current one in 1987. This is another Kodachrome slide from a small trove we recently found at my friend's house. This time you'll look in vain for me in funny clothes, because I wasn't along on this trip. View full size.
