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.

My dad

This is a photo of my dad but I don't know what animal it is. I would guess that it is a pig. I never heard the story behind the photo. He grew up on a 100 acre cotton farm near Antreville, SC. His parents were Ansel and Beatrice Murdock Brock and his brothers and sisters are Lawrence, Furman, Ansel Jr., Dorothy Brock and Victorine Brock Smith.

Gone hunting

What is that he shot? I thought it was a dog at first but it has hooves. A real skinny pig?
