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.

Charlie Brown's Sister Sally

I always wondered what inspired that character's hairstyle. I will wonder no more!

Forget a bad hair DAY, this is a bad hair life.

Their parents sure gave those girls a stupid hairstyle. It is kind of a Kewpie doll meets Mohawk gone amok.

Not quite twins

The Ellis Island Ship Database shows a a 6-year-old Veronica Gracie and a 5-year-old Miriam Gracie arriving from Rio on the Aeolus in March 1922, accompanied by a 30-year-old Samuel Gracie and 27-year-old Miriam Gracie. Veronica does have that older-sister look.

[Samuel de Sousa Leao Gracie was the charge d'affaires (first secretary) of the Brazilian Embassy. - Dave]

What A Pair

I assume they're twins. They are delightful.
