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.

Miss Elizabeth Zolnay, colorized

Miss Elizabeth  Zolnay, colorized

This is one of my favorite pictures on the site (so far). The scruffy dog and Miss Elizabeth's Mona Lisa smile really make the picture. View full size.

Fredric Falcon and Call 911

Fredric Falcon: Thanks much! I've got a few more, but don't want to bombard the site with them all at once. My first choice to submit was my version of Dorothea Lange's Migrant Mother, but someone beat me to that one.

And I've never been quite happy with Miss Elizabeth's hair color, actually.

Call 911 (and Dave): LOL about the grapefruit. Honestly though, I can't make that object be a grapefruit. It looks like a metal bowl to me.

Call 911

Why did you make her grapefruit black?

[Maybe it was broiled. Or is it some kind of melon? - Dave]

Excellent colorizing

I'm impressed by your fine attention to the smallest details and the color choices are natural. I might have chosen another color for her hair, though. But overall it's a fine addition to the Shorpy collection of colorized images.

Are you doing any more?
