Themed Activities: Global History and Geography

Photographic images held in the New York State Archives' collections in Albany show people and places as they appeared in the early twentieth century. The descriptions of the images are contemporary to that period.

Practices, meanings, and perceptions change over time, and those of only a few generations ago may reflect biases and assumptions no longer accepted. Explore these changes while viewing scenes of people and places which, in many cases, no longer exist.
