The Library of Congress is a treasure trove of information as we all know. And their website, loc.gov, has made many physical items from their physical collection available digitally. You can find the correspondence of important American historical figures such as Abraham Lincoln, Benjamin Franklin, Susan B. Anthony, Alexander Hamilton, and Abigail Adams.
A few more examples:
• Images of vintage baseball cards.
• Films of San Francisco before and after the earthquake of 1906.
• Films of the Westinghouse Works in Wilmerding, PA in 1904
The Digital Collection from the Library of Congress is a great site for students who need images or resources for a project. And it’s a great place to browse if you are a fan of history like I am!
