I’m still drawn each day to finding new (old) photos on the website with all the high-resolution (in other words, huge and crystal clear) old photos. It would appear that most of them have been scanned from big (8- by 10-inch) glass negatives. These would have been from large-format cameras, which would explain the clarity. Well, as long as no one moved around too much.

Today: a glimpse back at Washington, DC, in 1903, looking down Pennsylvania Avenue toward the capitol building. There are streetcars (lots of streetcars), pedestrians, delivery vehicles, wagons, owner-driven vehicles, a coachman-driven vehicle, and even what looks like a horse-drawn billboard.
