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.

mill

This is lumber mill in Glendale Humboldt County, Calif. Someone had written on the picture "first picture of the mill, 1883," this is about the time it was built. In the foreground you can see the logs coming out of the log pond. This photo had a lot of damage on the top third, I cleaned it up the best I could. Photographer is unknown.

This is the town of Fields Landing on north side of Humboldt Bay in Calif. The main road that goes to the foot of the bay leads to a whaling station. The large building to the front is known as the whalers inn. Postmark on this post card is dated 1912.

Mr. & Mrs James Granville Stovall

Mr. & Mrs James Granville Stovall

Mr & Mrs James Granville Stovall (nee Loretta Roan Wayland), who were married at Christmas time, 1899. They lived in Limestone County, Texas but went to Waco, to Jackson Studio, to record their newly married state and some obvious prosperity. This is another portrait taken at the same time as the more traditional pose of the gentleman seated and the lady standing. They are my maternal grandparents.
