Birmingham Public Library Photography Collection
Photographs (Birmingham Public Library)
The photograph collection depicts some of Birmingham’s prominent historic landmarks, pop culture palaces, businesses, churches, government buildings, gathering spaces, and people. While some of these structures have survived to the present, others are only memories. These photos form a composite portrait of the city over time.
Remote Access Available.
