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.

Can you imagine taking baby on a long trip in cloth diapers?

CUTE baby!!!!

Very cute little baby! Amazing to know he/she is older than me. I am older than dirt!

Evil Baby.

Something about this tot screams Damien.

Those were the days

Back when people got dressed up to travel.

Hey Baby!

You look awfully spry for a 66-year-old!

Meh

Esther produced some remarkable work, a few of which we've seen here on Shorpy.

This photo, however, is not one of them.

"I hope that Lady comes back for her kid!"

You know the trip to Memphis had to be loooong.
