SPECIAL COLLECTIONS RESEARCH CENTER

Can you help us identify these images?

The N.C. State Libraries Special Collections Research Center has nearly 300,000 photographic images in its collections. For many of these images, there exists little or no information about the people, places, dates, or events depicted in them. We have posted a small number of digitized photographs here with the hope that you can help us identify the places, faces, and scenes within them.

More information about Special Collections photographic holdings.

Please include the Photo ID number when submitting information about the photographs.
