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.

Mrs. Jim Jr.: The Do-Over

Mrs. Jim Jr.: The Do-Over

Washington, D.C., circa 1938. "Mrs. James R. Arneill Jr." None the worse for being shot a second time. Harris & Ewing glass negative. View full size.

A slight degree of madness

She looks like a cast member in Reefer Madness. Those pupils are HUGE!

On the right track

Well, Mrs. Arneill looks a great deal better here than in that silly artsy shot, but we're not there yet.

A bit of irritation with the photographer is showing through here, perhaps. He didn't do this perfectly attractive young woman much of a service, at least not in the shots we've seen so far.

Mme. Arneill, Jr.

She'll have to settle for this shot. It's not really all that bad.


These two photos remind me of the series of "proof" photos that we used to get for our high school yearbook. We would take home five or so pictures, and you could choose which one you wanted to order copies of and to appear in the yearbook. All the others got trashed.

I'm afraid that these somewhat unflattering photos of Mrs. Arneill might have fallen into the latter category.

Deer in the Headlights

Let's hope that the third time was a charm.
