12,000 photographs of the Mid-Atlantic states New York, New Jersey, and
Connecticut from the 1850s to the 1910s, from the Robert N. Dennis
Collection of Stereoscopic Views at the New York Public Library. The views
show buildings and street scenes in cities, towns, and villages as well
as natural landscapes.
They also depict agriculture, industry, transportation, homes, businesses,
local celebrations, natural disasters, people, and costumes.
The mission of the Library of Congress is to make its
resources available and useful to Congress and the American people and to
sustain and preserve a universal collection of knowledge and creativity
for future generations. The goal of the Library's National Digital
Library Program is to offer broad public access to a wide range of
historical and cultural documents as a contribution to education and
lifelong learning. Digital collections from other institutions complement
and enhance the Library's own resources.
The Library of Congress presents these documents as part of the record
of the past. These primary historical documents reflect the attitudes,
perspectives, and beliefs of different times. The Library of Congress
and New York Public Library do not endorse the views expressed in these
collections, which may contain materials offensive to some readers.
