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:
My mother (back left), 2nd Lieutenant, with other Women's Royal Army Corps officers in Scotland, c. 1949. The Schnauzer was the Commanding Officer's and was apparently a vicious beast that everyone was afraid of. Mom was drafted and served as a truck driver.
I have to check the details with my mother and her Service Book. View full size.
