So am I - when I click on that page, I get HTTP 503.
That's a serverside error - so nothing we can do but wait for them to fix it.

Due to maintenance, the National Archives Catalog will be offline until Tuesday, January 2, 2018 at the latest. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause.

At the moment, links like https://catalog.archives.gov/id/38547954 do not seem to work but individual links like https://catalog.archives.gov/OpaAPI/media/38547954/content/dc-metro/rg-026/559642/2017-01/storis-wmec-38-1952/storis-wmec-38-1952_0001.JPG are working.
