Street scene with vendors, children, and shoppers on street in African city

AGSL Digital Photo Archive – Africa presents a selection of images from the extensive photographic holdings of the American Geographical Society (AGS) Library. Images are drawn from several collections, including Richard U. Light and Mary (Light) Meader Collection, the Harrison Forman collection, and the Edna Schaus Sorensen and Clarence W. Sorensen Collection. The negatives, and accompanying photos and photography logs, are housed at the American Geographical Society Library. Many were scanned as part of the 2010-2012 NEH Grant Project to digitize the library’s collection of nitrate negatives. The coverage of this digital collection will expand as more photos are added to the site.
