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.

Seeking framable print of this exact photo

Is there somewhere where I can find this photo? I would just love to gift my brother this print- in a large, framed, quality setting. I have searched and searched and searched with no luck. Any insight regarding where I could purchase this print or how I can make it larger and still kepp the quality would be GREATLY appreciated!

Thank you!

My mother

I would like to think that my mother may have worked on this. She was employed at Willow Run during the War. She worked on the bombsights. I have what I believe to be the photo that was on her work badge.

More pixels please

Could there be a higher-resolution copy of this one in the backroom? This is one of my favorite shots on the site.
