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.

Two things I noticed immediately

It's interesting to note the 3-digit license plates, with another car having a TWO-digit one.

The other thing is two different women sitting alone in the passenger seats of their cars; their husbands running errands no doubt.


Below is the same view looking west on Forsyth Street past the intersection of Laura Street from January of 2008.

If I'm not mistaken

This photo is from 'the other side of the street' of the shot we saw in this thread

The Bisbee Building would be out of frame on the right of this shot, opposite of the Shamrock Hotel formerly located at 52 West Forsyth Street.
