The photographs in the Library of Congress collection are an important historical archive of not only the history of the United States since the 1850s, but the history of photography.  They are sometimes entertaining, sometimes informative, sometimes sad, but always interesting.

But the photos tell only part of the story. Information about the people, locations, occuptions, customs, clothing, etc. need to be added to frame the photographs in full.  That is where you come in.

We have captured the pictures and presented them in a format where information can be added by users via Comments.  You can help tell the story of what was happening then, and what has happened since.

If you have additional information about any of the pictures that would be educational or interesting to our users,  please join us and share it with them.  You can add photographs that you own (no copyright violations please) to a Comment if they are relevant to the posted picture.
