Explore our Archival City Photos

Streetography is proud to be coordinating with Dan Vanderkam's meticulously curated archives of historic San Francisco and New York City photos. Without his hard work geocoding hundreds of photographs, this project would not be possible! Photographs are pulled from San Francisco Public Library's Historical Photograph Collection and New York Public Library's Milstein Collection. SFPL and NYPL retain copyright to many of these photos (Terms and Conditions here) - Streetography does not retain copyright to any photos. For more information about the process of retrieving these photos, see oldSF.org and oldNYC.org. For our Amstardam photos, we're grateful to OldAms.nl/About. For our Moscow photos, we coordinated closely with pastvu.com. For any other questions or feedback, please email info@streetography.com.
