SPIRO - 1 views

  •  
    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.

    Since the invention of photography in 1839, libraries, museums, research institutes, and academic departments at Harvard and Radcliffe have created and collected photographs for use in research and instruction.

    "The Mid-Atlantic region of North America - stretching from New York south to Virginia - was a pivotal area in the early development of the American colonies and the United States. This website looks at this region and its history through maps created up to 1850." Cool.

Welcome to the Digital Library of Georgia - 0 views

  •  
    An extensive collection of texts and images detailing many aspects of life in the South during the twentieth century. Seems to focus on 'everyday' history rather than the big events. But then again history is about people, isn't it?

  •  
    A collection of rare maps and manuscripts on North American history from the founding of the colonies on the East Coast.

    Over 800 maps going back 500 years. Quality could be dodgy though - to be honest I didn't check. I've got bookmarkitis. Quality of comments is deteriorating. Need sleep.

Yale University Library - The Map Collection / Online Maps - 1 views

  •  
    A collection of online maps provided by Yale University Library. It seems it might require a plug-in to view them. It seems they are in the process of digitising even further so the collection should grow.

Photographs of the Great Depression - 0 views

  •  
    I usually avoid sites like this (wikis, encyclopaedias, etc - they're easily found) however this one has photos from the Great Depression so I thought it worthwhile. The faces are harrowing.
