The George Grantham Bain Collection of photographs at the Library of Congress contains images from one of America's earliest news picture agencies. The collection documents sports events, celebrities, theater, crime, strikes, disasters, and political activities, mainly from 1900 to the mid-1920s, but including some images from as early as 1860. Catalog records and high resolution digital images have recently been added for 11,000 glass negatives, joining the 1,200 photographic prints already represented online. More negatives will go online in the coming months. Click here to check it out.
