Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Archive: Museum of the City of New York

Launched in December 2010, the Collections Portal is the public side of a digitization project that will enable Web visitors to discover ever-larger portions of the Museum's collections.  It currently offers more than 62,000 photographs of New York City, thousands of which have never been available for public viewing.  And this is just a start - more photography will be added to the portal as imaging and cataloging work is completed, and the Museum has just begun digitizing the prints and drawings collections.  Be sure to use the magnifying glass icon below each picture to explore the images with the zoom feature - they captured the objects at an exceedingly high resolution, enabling you to investigate even the smallest details of these historic images.

The Collections Portal website can be found here.
