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.

Biloxi Bakery Workers, 1913 - Biloxi, MS

Biloxi Bakery Workers, 1913 - Biloxi, MS

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!
