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.

My blanket!

I am aghast. I have my baby blanket which my grandmother
made for me 67 years ago, in the same pattern as the one here. Tear in my eye.

No one's touching this one I see.

Yeah, it's kind of an awkward pose at best.

Such Innocence!

Absolutely Precious! (although if the upholstery on the arm of the loveseat is frayed, I'm surprised the blanket wasn't used to cover it up)
