Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Photo Archive: NYC Department of Records

Culled from the Municipal Archives collection of more than 2.2 million images going back to the mid-1800s, NYC's Department of Records officially announced the debut of their online photo archive featuring all manner of city oversight — from stately ports and bridges to grisly gangland killings.

The project was four years in the making, part of the department’s mission to make city records accessible to everyone. Selected from the world-class historical collections of the Archives, most of these unique photographs, maps, motion picture and audio recordings are being made accessible for the first time through their website here.
