About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

re: Re: Now with more photos

Thanks for pointing that out. It's now fixed.

Re: Now with more photos

FYI: The more recently posted Ellis Island photos are displaying html code rather than images like the older markers.

The Shorpy Map

I do like the map since so many of the photos on this site are from the New York area, but why no love for Brooklyn?


This is really great! I am particularly fond of Shorpy because of my curiosity about nexus of geography and history and identity. This feature is a great enhancement to the pleasure of pondering these ideas. Yes, Chicago too.

Now with more photos

Thanks for pointing out the KML link.

I've gone back in and added more photos where I could identify addresses. If anyone stumbles across one I've left off, please let me know.

Context is King

I live here in NY and always try to place the images in my mind. This is a real boon!

This is great - try it in Google Earth too!

Someone asked if we need this -- no, of course we don't need this. We don't actually need any of this. But I really appreciate having a way to explore these great photographs geographically, and hope that this New York map is just the beginning.

If you follow the link to the fullscreen version on the Google Maps site, you will also see a link to the KML file for this. KML is the format used by Google Earth, which allows you to fly around and zoom in and have to download the free Google Earth software first.

Thanks to Ken for doing this -- I really appreciate the effort and creativity here.


One on Chicago would be great. It could list all the locations Al Capone's men shot people. With photos !!!


Thanks Ken!! I, myself, will spend hours looking at this and reading about these places. Great job!

The Map

I love it! Thanks!


This is great Dave! It just makes everything come together so nicely. Puts it all in context. Thanks for doing that! Now, do something like this for Chicago! :o) There is so much history there too.

[It is nifty, isn't it? Actually Ken did this. Thanks, Ken. - Dave]


Do we really need this one?
