This collection was twenty years in the making and comes from dozens of sources.
I've visited 90 percent of these places and most of the modern photos are my own.
I've done my best to source and identify the archival photos, many are widely available across the net.


I've arranged the photos alpabetically by Community, with the definition of "Community"  interpreted as a name on a map. It could be a town ot merely a Post Office. Basically a recognized place name associated with HOME or NEIGHBOURHOOD that may or may not have passed into disuse.

The collection is something I use on a daily basis and many of the images are cropped, sized and editted for my needs. In many cases higher resolution photos, and unretouched photos are available on the originals sites or in my collection.

I have also sorted the Places Collection around themes, sub-categories and other Topics
