Many new photos on Milwaukee Historic Photos

Blatz Brewery general officesIn late 2009, MPL applied for and received an LSTA grant to digitize 2,900 photographs from the Historic Photo Collection. These photos deal with Milwaukee's historic business and industry.

Since January of 2010, work has been moving forward in the addition of these photos to Milwaukee Historic Photos, MPL's largest and most extensive digital collection. The collection began the year with 1,176 records and is now up to 2,284 records. That is an addition of 1,108 records to date which puts the project over one third of its way to completion.

Photos in new areas that have been added include:
Airports
Banks
Beer Gardens
Breweries
Conventions
Garages
Theaters

Also included have been Business & Industry letters A, B, and C.

Throughout the rest of 2010 the remaining 1,792 photos will be added to the collection so make sure to keep checking back for new additions.
