Images include photographs, art, postcards, architectural drawings, and stamps that depict people, structures, vessels, places, and other subjects in the Digital Archive. Many images in the Archive have been scanned at high-resolution and some are zoomable.
Good to Know
- An Image item depicts a Reference Item. The image may have information associated with it such as where and when it was made and by whom, but the information about the subject of the image is in its related Reference item.
- The Item Type hierarchy has sub-types to indicate specific information about a photograph such as stereograph, tintype, glass plate, or digital. When that information is not known, the type is simply Image, Photograph.
