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.

Boulder Colorado 1916

My mother was born in 1916. This shot of the main street in Boulder Colorado shows my grandmother standing on the sidewalk, perching her hands on her swollen belly, gazing toward the Daily Camera office and the foothills of the Front Range. Photograph by Harold V. Hartsough

Great Boulder Photo!

I'm living in Boulder now, where I was born and where my mother was born. Just moved back here from Mount Shasta (I see you're in Yreka) a few months ago. :)

Thanks for sharing this wonderful photo!
