Historypin of Southern Illinois

Wheeler Library, SIU Campus

Did you ever wonder what Cobden looked like in 1910? Or Anna in 1898?  The Special Collections Research Center has been digitizing old photographs and postcards depicting building and street scenes in towns across Southern Illinois for our presence on Historypin. Historypin provides an alternative way to provide access to our visual collections. The photographs and postcards are pinned to a Google map to show what the building, street scene, or landscape looked like years ago. Please see our collection homepage at:!photos/list/
