Primary documents can be valuable additions to the curriculum, and going with the old adage “a picture is worth a thousand words” let me remind you of the value of photo archives. Here are but a few of the outstanding photograph archives that can be found online.
The blog “Sweet Juniper!” posts photos of “Street Urchins” allowing us to look back at the place of children in society. Many of their photos come from the photography archives of the Library of Congress.
