Selected images from the DHS (Delaware Historical Society) Photograph Collection, 1850-2000. The collection is rich and deep, spanning the state geographically and topically, and documenting the history of its land and people from the earliest years of photography to the present day. Included in the collection are numerous formats of prints and negatives, portraits, formal photography and snapshots, images of people, buildings, places and events. The collection includes the work of both formal professional photographers and amateur and family photographers. The photographs have been collected together through purchase and donation in small numbers.
