Do You like Old Photographs?
Well, of course you must if you love local history. But, do you know how you can look at a great number of Kalamazoo photographs from the collection of the local history room from your computer? It’s so easy. Just follow these instructions:
- Go to www.kpl.gov
- Click on “Catalog”
- Then go to the far right of that page and click on “Local Information”
- This brings up six different categories, you want “Local Photographs”
Now you can search for a whole host of images typing in general search words like “education” or specific search words like “Kalamazoo Public Schools.” Once you get a list, you will notice there is a small icon in the lower right hand corner for each entry. Click on that and the image will appear. If you would like to make the image larger, just click on it. This also includes some images from the Kalamazoo Valley Museum and the Western Michigan University Archives and Regional History Collection.
This is a treat…enjoy!
