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.

World Weary?

I'm not so sure. Far more of a "come keep me company...if you get my drift" look.

It's in the eyes

Starting to wear that world-weary look. Sad to see and to realize what's in her future.

What presents you bring!!

I have seen some versions of the Marilyn photos from the net that you've posted of late, but NONE are of the hi-res variety as you have here nor are they as large. I simply cannot express my gratitude enough for posting these. I'm also very happy to see fine-print versions are available here as well. Merry Christmas to ME. Thanks again!
