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.

Perhaps. Or the photographer's girlfriend. Or just someone he deemed as attractive.

Tai Chi

1913 style.

Beach Boots...

Miss (or Mrs.?) Reiber is sporting the latest word in canvas bathing shoes; I believe they were required to be worn by women on most "respectable" beaches in this era. I have actually seen a few old pairs for sale on ebay.

Steeeee-Rike !!

Looks like a real soppy summer beach set of Sand-Lot baseball.

Nice Wind Up!

Looks like she is out for a day of baseball on the beach. It appears the photographer caught her in action.

Are those baseball shoes???

Nice shoes

If you're wrestling. And not at the beach.

On the Beach

Why is there a septic vent behind Hazel? Where does she get replacements for the laces on her shoes? Could she possibly be a female boxer? What a gal!
