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.

Naked Bakery

Thank you, so much, Joe.

The pretty good late 50's early 60's TV police drama "Naked City" closed each episode with, "There are eight million stories in the Naked City. This has been one of them."

I'm thinking that line could apply to Shorpy, except the "eight million" part and that's just a matter of time.

Glen Dungey: Bakery Boy

This is Joe Manning, of the Lewis Hine Project. A few months after I posted what little I had uncovered about this boy (Glen, not Glenn), I was contacted by a relative, and a very interesting and touching story emerged. I just posted it on my website at:
