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.

Master Carver: 1983

A time-honored tradition: the ritual dismemberment of the Thanksgiving turkey, performed by my father in, yes, the Salmon Kitchen. Shortly after I took this bounce-flash Vericolor negative, the remains were conducted to the dining room, where they fulfilled their destiny at the hands and mouths of eight eager celebrants. Sic transit gloria meleagris.
