The General Collection
The General Photo Collection, nearly 50,000 of the most significant and most used photographs, are arranged alphabetically by subject from apiaries to zoos. Particularly important holdings deal with Michigan lumbering, Great Lakes shipping, Michigan mining, urban and rural life styles, and Michigan community scenes.
A notebook of "Subject Headings" is available in the Reading Room. There is also a card index of places and of more specific subjects. The collection is also available on microfilm and can easily be used independently by researchers in the Microfilm Area of the Reading Room.
