I am looking for historic photos of Durango. How can I view them online?
You can search in the Historical Documents cabinet (follow the link below). Select Photos as the document type, and enter your key words. The City's photos are rather limited and focus on the City government itself.


To view historic photos of Durango, you might have better results searching Fort Lewis College's Southwest Studies Center site at http://swcenter.fortlewis.edu/finding_aids.shtml -- do a Google search of their site for your terms, along with photo*. The Center has some of the archives of the City of Durango, described in the online finding aids.


Also, try the Animas Museum's site at http://www.animasmuseum.org/research.html -- which also lists other sites for photos, including the fabulous collection (thousands of them online) at the Denver Public Library's Western History Department.
