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.

No-one out

Finlanders don't like their picture taken!

Duluth in the winter

This is actually a nice shot to follow the icy accident photo.

In the winter Duluth's steep hills and purposely unplowed side streets re-create the preceding photo many times over each year. Driving in this city during the winter months builds nerves 00 nothing like sliding down a slick road with the icy vastness of Lake Superior below.

Camera shy.

Duluthians heard they were being photographed, so they went inside.

Great backdrop

for a model train. Great pic!

No Trackside Baseball

The other photos in the "daily dose of Duluth" series seem to have more people visible. I only see four people in this shot. Maybe it has something to do with the time of day.
