Pediment works with newspapers all over the United States to help them create a view into the history of their town or region. We will often come back to a community for several years, publishing volumes that cover the 1800s all the way up through the current year, and our editors have seen photo donors that come back every year to share more of their family history.
Below is a sampling of images submitted by the public that were included in our newspaper partners' publications. Some of the typical photo categories include:
Views and Street Scenes
Overhead/aerial views, and scenes on both residential and city streets.
Planes, Trains, And Automobiles. And horses, carriages, livery and stables, ships, railroad, motorcycles, hot air balloons...
Industry and Agriculture
Logging, mining, farming, steel work, mills...
