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.

Lives of the Party: 1934

Lives of the Party: 1934

Costume party for the Western States Life Insurance Company Employees' Club, Oct. 25, 1934. I think this was taken in the Grand Ballroom of the Masonic Temple in Sacramento at 1123 J Street, which still exists. One of the employees was my wife's aunt, who I believe is three rows back on the right and hidden by the conductor; her friend Marion is in front and to the right of her. View full size.

Grandfather Takes Deadwood: 1910

Grandfather Takes Deadwood: 1910

Studio portrait of my grandfather, William Haase, taken about 1910 in Deadwood, South Dakota. He is at left rear, with an unidentified friend to his left. The three ladies in front are also unidentified, although family legend has it that two of them were "cousins" of Grandpa William. Uh-huh. William died in 1930 when my mother was only 8 years old, so most of the truth about this escapade has been left to conjecture. View full size.
