About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Syracuse Panorama: 1901

Syracuse Panorama: 1901

Circa 1901. "General view of Syracuse, N.Y." At center is the University Building on Washington Street. Panorama of five 8x10 inch glass plates. View full size.


I'm curious

Who gets to live in the penthouse?

Syracuse U.

So is that my alma mater lurking on the hills behind the church spire? Looks (R to L) like Crouse College, Hall of Languages, and maybe Lyman? I note in passing that there is no snow in this picture, as is also true of all recruiting pictures from SU.

Little help here

I love these panoramas Dave, but could you come over and stitch five monitors together to view them? Thanks!
