About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

The Rifle

must be for when the revenuers would come.


Okay, I've waited two days now for someone to say something about the rifle on the wall. I guess it's up to me.

Defend yourself

I am not sure that I would fire that shotgun before checking the barrel to see if the mud dauber wasps had plugged it.

My First Thought

I was excited to open the comment and it was "breezeway"; that was exactly what I thought when I scrolled down to the picture. Growing up in Oregon, my friends house had one. We always played in the breezeway.

Fresh Air

Ahh, a breezeway. Frances Benjamin Johnston does it again!
