Photographs

A sampling of the City Archives photo collection can be seen on line below, but the majority of the City Archives photo collection is not on line at this time.  Most of the photographs in the City Archives are of street work but we also have publicity photos from City officials and a scattering of photos of city facilities or events.  A photograph list below contains the captions of all of our photographs along with photograph and/or box numbers.  You may search the list for key words related to your topic of interest, for example street names, and note the photograph and box number, then please contact the City Archives at michael.holland@lacity.org to arrange a visit.  Also please note our commercial use fees list below if you are interested in publishing any of our photographs.  You may also be interested in some of the links to other photo collections on our "Online Resources" page, see the tab to the left.
