Zoom-able History #1

Wednesday, 9 Mar 2011 | by Mark Tucker

The Library of Congress is a great resource for photographs. Many of which are in the public domain. Which means that they fit within the terms of use of the site.

As I find interesting photos from history (including some from the LOC site) I will put them on (if I legally can) and share them with others. I will try to find those that have enough resolution to be interesting when deep zoomed.

Here is a snapshot of history in zoom-able form:

The photo includes a written date, “SUFFRAGE PARADE”, and even a hint of the location.

Can you photo detectives out there find the address of the location in the photo and a newspaper article about this event?


  1. Pre-election parade for suffrage in NYC, Oct. 23, 1915, in which 20,000 women marched.

    Nice site devoted to shoe fashion shows another view of this parade.
