Research: Photos at the Missouri History Museum

Doing research for a story set in Missouri’s past?  Especially if you are dealing with something set in the St. Louis area, check out the digital content that the Missouri Historical Society had made available to the public.

You will find digitized historic photos as well as photos taken of artifacts in the museum’s collection.  Browse by collection name or search using various key words.

My search on “horses” delivered 147 results including references in articles, a 1908 photo of horses at a trough on Cass, a Civil War era letter, ads, portraits and more.

This is a feature I am looking forward to using.
