I would like to announce the release of the newly redesigned Barnard Stockbridge Photograph Collection:


The digital collection contains over 1200 historical photographs of Northern Idaho towns, mines, and mills, including photographs documenting the aftermath of the Big Burn fires of 1910 (an online exhibition of these photos and related documents can be found here: http://www.lib.uidaho.edu/digital/bigburn/). The original collection consists of over 200,000 nitrocellulose and glass plate negatives taken by Nellie Stockbridge and her predecessor, T.N. Barnard. These were given to the University of Idaho Library in 1962.

The web portal allows a user to browse these photos by timeline, subject or Google map interface, view selected photos via image gallery, and search the photographs’ metadata.
