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.

Ovals of Protection

Are those ovals sewn onto some of the sweaters (the ball carrier's, as well as the guy on the ground on the right) team identifying marks, or some sort of primitive padding system?

These old football photos

are terrific. The absence of face masks really lets you see the intensity on he players' faces.
