More Digitized Historical Images Added to National Photo Company Collection

It was a month ago when we posted that the number of images in the National Photo Company Collection (NAPCO) via LC had expanded to about 2800. Well, we can report that during February the amount of images available via the NAPCO database has continued to grow. As of today, more than 7300 images have been digitized and are available online.

From the database:

ca. 1850-1945, bulk 1909-1932. Photos assembled by Herbert French, who supplied photographs of news events in Washington, D.C., to subscribers. Features portraits of presidents and celebrities and scenes of social life. Includes a growing proportion of the original negatives in the National Photo Company Collection ans well as some photographic prints for which copy photos have been produced.
