Historical photographs

Welcome to our Online Collections Photo Database

Historical Photographs are among the most popular features of our collections.  We use them in almost all of our exhibits, publications and programs. They are among our most requested research questions.

So far only about 130 of our 3000 + images area available online.  Not all will be of good enough quality to post but we are working slowly through the collection and posting when the data is updated as needed.
[Please note, we have limited and only volunteer staff working on this project, please be patient and we will try to find more information about the images.]

The Keyword Search button allows you to perform a general search across multiple fields for any catalog records online. Keyword searches use OR as the default connector between words If you want to find records where both keywords are found, type in AND between the two words.
To search for a specific phrase, be sure to put the phrase within quotes.

You can also use the asterisk (*) as a wildcard (e.g. a search for histor* would come up with records containing historyhistorieshistorical, etc.). Searches are not case sensitive.

The Advanced Search button can help you be more specific with your search. You can search for a word or phrase within a particular search category or use multiple categories to further narrow down your search results.
You can also search People and Creator (photographer) records through Advanced Search. Phrase searching with quotes and use of wildcards (*) are available in Advanced Search.

The Random Images button is a great way to just browse the collection. Each Random Images page displays a random assortment of images from the records online. If something piques your interest, click the thumbnail to view a larger version of the image.

You can also browse records within that catalog without performing a search. Phrase searching, wildcards (*) as well as AND/OR statements are available when performing catalog searches.
