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.
Vintage photos of:
May 7, 1923. "Joseph W. Schollick." Whose name is also attached to this photo of a similar-looking but evidently different person, George Marshall, also seen here on Shorpy. My guess is that somehow the "osteologist" caption got attached to a photo of the taxidermist because these two look so much alike. National Photo Company Collection glass negative. View full size.
