I can confirm the slowdown. HTTP HEAD requests are quite fast:

curl --head
http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/data/batches/batch_vi_affirmed_ver01/data/sn960980762611/0002.jp2

HTTP GET requests are hanging before the start of the response headers:

$ nc chroniclingamerica.loc.gov 80
GET
/data/batches/batch_vi_affirmed_ver01/data/sn96096625/00280762611/0001.jp2
HTTP/1.1
