Thursday: Primary Research: Denver Public Library Photo Archives

cameraI found out about the on-line photo offerings at the Denver Public Library through a geneology blog

Not into geneology?  Remember, photos are primary data. 

The Denver Public Library has a searchable on-line database of  over 120,000 of the images in their extensive collection.   You can do a search by author, title or subject, but my favorites are the online image galleries arranged by subject.   Within each gallery, you can view “all images” or a slide show. 

Hint:  If you choose slide show, but your cursor over the image to view the caption. 

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have some ol’ time photos to peruse.   And these won’t even leave me sneezy.
