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.
Vintage photos of:
Washington, D.C., 1932. "Vacated 'Bonus Army' camp." Burned-out remnants of the Bonus marchers' camp in Anacostia Flats, with gas holders and what looks like a railroad bridge in the distance. And in the foreground, what we suppose might be conduit for the D.C. aqueduct. Harris & Ewing glass negative. View full size.
UPDATE: The photographer is Tony Linck, whose work appeared in Life magazine. The location is probably around Utica, New York.
From somewhere in New England in the 1940s comes this uncaptioned 4x5 Agfa negative of three happy guys and their Ford truck. View full size.
