About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Deja view

RDown and I had the same reaction to this photo! Eerie!

One More Change

The P.A.U. (now O.A.S.) has done a fine job. Now we have apples year-round thanks to Chile, Argentine and Brazil.

A little later shot of that building

I shot that building about 10 years ago while in DC.

A whole lot of apples...

from those tiny trees!

Two Changes

The Pan-American Union is now the Organization of American States (OAS). And National Apple Week is now National Apple Month.

The future

Little did these guys know that in three years they'd be standing on a corner selling those apples for a nickel each.


Are those boxwoods on either end of the stairs? They are massive and well maintained!
