Old Time Photos

I love looking through my grandparents’ photo albums and trying to get a glimpse of their world, what it must have been like to live in the early 1900s.

Take another look at that world at Frontier Life in the West, photos by John C. H. Grabill. Between 1887 and 1892,  Grabill sent 188 photographs to the Library of Congress for copyright protection. Grabill is known as a western photographer, documenting many aspects of frontier life — hunting, mining, western town landscapes and white settlers’ relationships with Native Americans.
