Selections from the Sanborn Collection of Prints from Nitrate Negatives, ca. 1920-1945. This collection is an invaluable local and regional resource, capturing the flavor of life in Delaware between the two world wars. The images, captured by Arthur Nelson Sanborn Sr., a commercial photographer in Wilmington, include schools, churches, houses, businesses, street scenes, trolleys, cars, and people at work and at play.
