    * Lawrence Royal & Cabinet Collections
    The Lawrence Collection consists of 40,000 glass plate negatives from 1870-1914. The images were produced commercially and capture topographical scenes of that period throughout Ireland. The entire Lawrence Royal collection (10,784 plates) and part of the Lawrence Cabinet collection (2,040 plates) are available here to view online.

    * Poole Whole Plate Collection
    The Poole collection comprises 65,000 glass plate negatives and was created by the family firm of A.H. Poole in Waterford between 1884-1954. The majority of images in the collection are studio portraits but the Poole Whole Plate subset which consists of 5,119 images, reflects the diversity of the collection with studio portraits, social and political events and also images of architecture and industry in the south east of Ireland.

    * Independent H Collection
    The Independent Newspaper collection of some 300,000 images, is made up of glass plates, plastic negatives and a small number of prints. The Independent H collection is a subset of the collection and contains 3,250 glass plates negatives dating from 1912-1936. It provides a record of many aspects of 20th century Irish life, and is particularly strong in the coverage of politics and sport in Ireland.

LAistory: The Pan Pacific Auditorium - LAist - 0 views

  •  
    Imagine a structure hailed for its exterior design that took 60 days to build, was trafficked by hundreds of thousands of people for almost four decades, spent 17 years abandoned with an uncertain fate, contributed to the launch of LA's preservation movement, and took one night to burn to the ground.

the applied history of art and architecture - 3 views

  •  
    An excellent example of using online technologies with classes from a teacher in Hawaii.
  •  
    I need to hear from those of you who have gone to the website and would be willing to write me a short note so that I can include that in the grant proposal that I am writing. I need to have evidence that the site is being used in schools around the world.

    Thank you very much.

    Searchable database of images of buildings, objects, people, etc. Is run out of UC Berkeley so will probably focus on West Coast USA. That's just a guess though.

    This is a secondary source with information on a wide variety of topics centred around medieval European castles. I usually avoid this type of site (superficial information, oversimplification) but this one has some beautiful images and it's a topic students usually enjoy.

Bill Thayer's Gazetteer of Italy - 1 views

  •  
    Has some choice images of ancient and medieval Italy which would be useful for assessment design, classroom resources or research. I found some of the information accompanying the images a little superficial, however.
