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.

Didn't I Have Six Dice?

Didn't I Have Six Dice?

"A Winning Miss" in 1911. Art Photo Co., Grand Rapids, Mich. View full size.

 

Who

I hate these photographs! They make be yearn to know who it is. Such a pity that this beautiful lady has been lost to history.

Wedding band

After my chair stopped spinning ... I believe this vixen is wearing a wedding band. Maybe she just asked her husband to put down the growler and help her find that sixth die.

Winning Miss, indeed

Even the Snake Eyes have 5 eyes on her!

No Pun Intended

The box that holds the Hasbro game "Yahtzee" shows 5 dice on its cover.I think that's what a previous commenter was trying to tell us.

There seems to be a pun here.

I get the alternative meaning, "A Winning Miss." but what is the primary meaning in a dice game with 5 dice? Is there supposed to be an additional die? Or is rolling five is something akin to crapping out?

Dice...?

...What dice?

Yahtzee anyone?

Yahtzee anyone?

They had it back then...

This image puts paid to the lie that every generation thinks it invented sex.

Grandma!?!?

Grandma, is that you?

Y'ever find spiders in there?

Remember that line from The Longest Yard? Referring to the hair, for anybody who got around to looking at the top of the picture.

Cool

Kudos for remembering. What we've got here is a failure to communicate.

Love the name of the photographer......

"Art Photo Co"

I'd give her the 23 Skiddoo,

I'd give her the 23 Skiddoo, and no mistake!

Hello...

Wouldn't throw her out of the Re-Elect Taft rally.

Cool Hand Luke

"Lord, don't strike me blind"

Like Lucille in Cool Hand Luke

One more inch of slippage or something like that

Wow!

Wow, check out the size of her…

hair.

Maybe she should look ...

in her, um, cup?

All I have to say is...

Yahtzee!
