Prints and Photographs

Unique in their scope and richness, the prints and photographs collections today number more than 13.7 million images. These include photographs, fine and popular prints and drawings, posters, and architectural and engineering drawings. While international in scope, the collections are particularly rich in materials produced in, or documenting the history of, the United States and the lives, interests and achievements of the American people. The images selected for this booklet help to show what the town square areas looked like throughout Coles County in the past. Accessed 03.02.09 http://www.loc.gov/rr/print/list/599_linc.html
