Capturing Images of New England

Historic New England’s photographic collections are vast, numbering more than 500,000 images dating from the nineteenth century to the present.

These photographs depict innumerable facets of life in the region, from urban scenes to rural landscapes to life at sea, and from family gatherings to life in the work place. Daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, cartes de visite, stereo views, tintypes, and prints make up the collections.
