Search Tips

Quotation Marks—Enclosing a multiword phrase in quotation marks tells the search engine to list only sites that contain those words in that exact order.

The following must appear in ALL CAPS and with a space on each side.

AND—Indicates that the records found must contain all the words joined by the AND operator. For example, to find objects that contain the words wizard, oz, and movie, enter wizard AND oz AND movie.

OR—Records found must contain at least one of the words joined by OR. For example, to find objects that contain the word dog or the word puppy, enter dog OR puppy.

AND NOT—Indicates that the records found cannot contain the word that follows the term AND NOT. For example, to find objects that contain the word pets but not the word dogs, enter pets AND NOT dogs.

Bridge hand


Newspaper file photographs used to be in a standard format, previous to the digital age. Black and white and 8 by 10 inches, they covered an amazing variety of subjects. Many probably never made it into the newspaper, but publishers kept a huge stock of them on hand to be used when necessary. This "Bridge Hand" photograph is one such example. Information on the reverse reveals it came from St. Petersburg, Florida.
