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.

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.
