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.

Watermelon Eaters

Watermelon Eaters

1957-1958. All relatives from my father's side. Far left is my aunt Judy (as seen in my previous post "Uncle Butch and Aunt Judy"), next to her is my grandmother, below her is my father Roger, and the far left of the negative is my uncle Jack (as seen in another post with the shark jaws). View full size.


Correction, far right in image is my aunt Judy, grandmother, and father, Roger, below the two.

[FYI to anyone posting a photo, you can change the captions at any time. Open the post and then click the "Edit" tab. Make your changes and then click "Submit." - Dave]
