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.

Another photo found in a bought frame; this one from a prop house that was the successor to the 20th Century prop department.
This picture shows a 'class photo' style of the teams playing an early century baseball game. The game appears to have taken place at the Medfield State Hospital (see scoreboard), between Medfield Baseball club and the USS Georgia.
The outfits of the players, band, and women in the back, along with what little we can see of the car leads me to believe this is from the early 1900s. Beyond that I know very little, there is nothing listed on the back of the photo.
Any information would be appreciated, I'd love to get this photo or a historical society for Medford, the USS Georgia, or other similar group. View full size.
