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.
Vintage photos of:
Biloxi, Mississippi - The Biloxi Bakery's retail shop - featuring two standing loaves of Fred Klein Sr.'s Famous French Bread.
Left to right are Feenie, Fred Sr., Verna and Fred Klein Jr. The shop was remodeled two years later when a restaurant and delicatessen were added on (to the right side of the picture).
