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.

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.

Vintage photos of:
The Biloxi Bakery workers of 1913 - the founder, Fred Klein Sr. is in the middle - arms folded. Famed for his New Orleans style french bread, he operated the bakery until his retirement in 1964. His three sons operated the bakery until 1973 when it was demolished to make way for an urban renewal project - that subsequently failed! No air conditioning, no overhead lighting (except for the gas mantle globed lamps), just lots of flour!
