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.

Isn't It Odd ...

that we can become sexually aroused by people who are dead now? But once upon a time, long before any of us existed, these people were young, full of life, vitality and sensuality. Have you ever looked at your wife, husband or "significant other" and seen through their skin to their skeletons? Life - and the nature of life - is strange sometimes. You're left to wonder if it isn't just a big illusion, after all.

[Odd, yes. And then some. - Dave]

Their feet?

What the heck are they wearing on their feet? Rolled up socks? Special rowing shoes?

Hot guys

Of course they're hot, standing out in the sun on a hot deck you'd be too!!


Some of those guys are hot! And they aren't wearing underwear either.

Seriously though. I wouldn't want to get into a fight with any of them. They look like they could be ruffians.
