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.

Grandmother, Mom, my aunts (& Wiggy)

Grandmother, Mom, my aunts (& Wiggy)

For Mother's Day - my mom's mother, Eleanor, her daughters Gretchen, Heather and (the youngest) Sheila, my mom, with dog Wiggy. The girls are all wearing coats made by Eleanor. 1947ish. (I get my auburn from Eleanor).

Mischievous girls

A delightful group. Mom looks as mischievous as her darling girls. The smiles say so much!

Love this picture!

There's just something so charming about this picture. They all look so happy. The children have a sort of devilish, fun loving look in their eyes. Their mother does look so proud of her brood and her marvelous tailoring ability. The dog is wonderful, too! Thanks for posting this great photo.

Stylish Grandmother

Your grandmother looks very stylish. Amazing that she made these coats...and she looks so proud.

Darien,

Location?

Do you know what city/state this was taken in? It sure looks like a happy family!
