Digitize photographs from our collection can be found here. The Philadelphia Evening Bulletin Photographs, the Housing Association of The Delaware Valley Photographs, the City Parks Association Photographs are good starting places for historical photographs of the Philadelphia and the surrounding region.
Newspaper Clippings and Photographs
The clipping and photograph files of the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin and the Philadelphia Inquirer are great resources for getting up to speed on how a particular topic was covered in the popular press at the time. You can search by subject (“Puerto Ricans” or “Germantown”) or personal names, ("Frank Rizzo").
