Wow! The Rocky Mountain News photo collection that we have just activated online is full of treasures! The album below shows just a few of the amazing images that are part of this vast archive. The cataloging and accompanying information with each photo is not as completely reliable or predictable as it is for our original core collection of black and white historical images, but some rummaging around will generate some truly amazing results.
Here is our exhibit that tells all about the Rocky Mountain News photos at the Denver Public Library, how the collection came to us, and ideas about how to navigate its wide ranging contents.
"Wow Photo Wednesday" celebrates photographs in the Denver Public Library's Digital Collections that have "The Wow Factor" and that highlight the myriad delightful nuggets in our database.
