Photographs & Digital Galleries

Photograph Collections
The Louisiana Division/City Archives Photograph Collection includes over 40,000 individual photographic prints, negatives and slides. The images are only partially represented online, but more are being added each year.

Our photographs can be found at two locations online:

Monthly Galleries
Images of the Month Gallery, 1996-2007

The Images of the Month Gallery was one of the NOPL website's earliest features, begun soon after our web page's debut on April Fool's Day, 1995. Each month, the Gallery presented a series of thematically linked images from the Louisiana Division collections or from the City Archives. The Gallery was discontinued at the end of 2007.

Image of the Month Gallery, 2008 - 2012

The Image of the Month Gallery featured a single image chosen from our collections each month. This gallery was discontinued in September 2012.

Pamphlet of the Month Gallery, 2008 - 2011

From January 2008 to December 2011, the Pamphlet of the Month Gallery featured a digitized version of one of the many historical pamphlets in our collections.

Letter of the Month Gallery, 2012

The Letter of the Month Gallery (2012) highlighted one of the many thousands of written communications housed in the collections.
