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.

An Historic Occasion

Yes, children this was the very day the word "gams" was invented. Hubba hubba!

Sad but True

I know, but I would totally wear everything that these ladies are wearing! The hair, the overalls, the pants, the jewelery, the shoes! I just love it all!

Btw, I agree with the Proto Lily Tomlin!
