Photograph Collections

This website features many photograph collections. These collections are cataloged in order to provide attribution of the photography and to link to archival versions of the photographs which may be too large for internet presentation. The archival photographs have the same name except for a possible scale factor and different file type. Because these names are processed by batch files, use only lower case letters (except for newspaper sections used with page numbering), do NOT use special characters like a question marks, and use only digits where a digit is expected, do not repeat the hyphen.

Photos are largely cataloged by their name as shown in:


where date can be (using x as any digit 0-9):

  • xxxx four-digit-year
  • xxxx-xxxx range of four-digit-years
  • xxxx-xx four-digit-year and two-digit-month
  • xxxx-xx-xx four-digit-year, two-digit-month and two-digit-day
  • 0000 four zeros for unknown year
