If you’ve taken a look at any of Augustana’s sesquicentennial pages, you have probably seen a lot of historical photos of Augustana. Most of these photos are housed, in their print versions, in Special Collections. But Special Collections also now has a Flickr page, where you can view a sample of our historical Augustana photos.
The number of photos on Flickr is small compared to the number of photos held in Special Collections: about 60,000 photos in the form of prints, negatives, slides, and glass plate negatives. Some of these photos are personal, some are of the local area, and many are of Augustana itself.
