Web Site of the Week: Archive of Early American Images

This collection brings together thousands of images from the John Carter Brown Library at Brown University that tell the story of the colonial Americas. The images date from around 1492 to the 1820s and visitors can browse the collection by category, which include What, Where, Who, and When. The What section has some subcategories that range from the tragic (Accidental Deaths) to those that are more transit-oriented (Stagecoaches). The images here are suitable for use in the classroom and visitors who teach American history, geography, and a range of other subjects will find the materials most useful for providing visual armature to any lecture or discussion.
