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.

St. Clair Street in the 1990s

During the 1990s I worked at the A. H. Jamra company on St. Clair Street. It was a large brick building with wood floors and exposed wood beams. The company was a Candy & Tobacco wholesale distributor. I would be there for a month or so at a time each year. There was a post office on St. Clair Street near Jamra and I am wondering if this is the same post office of 1905.

Losing season

The 1905 Mud Hens playing in the American Association compiled a 60-91, .397 season finishing 7th (out of 8)

more stats here

Just wondering...

How did the Mud Hens do that year? Their record must have been published in one of the October magazines advertised here.


Very little left.

Unless I missed the mark the only thing left is the church on the right.
