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.

Hazel Reiber: 1913

Hazel Reiber: 1913

Long Beach, Long Island, N.Y., circa 1913. "Hazel Reiber." Who was evidently enough of a notable to have her picture taken (twice) by the Bain News Service. 5x7 glass negative, George Grantham Bain Collection. View full size.

 

Notable?

Perhaps. Or the photographer's girlfriend. Or just someone he deemed as attractive.

Tai Chi

1913 style.

Beach Boots...

Miss (or Mrs.?) Reiber is sporting the latest word in canvas bathing shoes; I believe they were required to be worn by women on most "respectable" beaches in this era. I have actually seen a few old pairs for sale on ebay.

Steeeee-Rike !!

Looks like a real soppy summer beach set of Sand-Lot baseball.

Nice Wind Up!

Looks like she is out for a day of baseball on the beach. It appears the photographer caught her in action.

Are those baseball shoes???

Nice shoes

If you're wrestling. And not at the beach.

On the Beach

Why is there a septic vent behind Hazel? Where does she get replacements for the laces on her shoes? Could she possibly be a female boxer? What a gal!
