A Must See! U.S. Geological Survey Photographic Library
Terrific material with more to come.
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Central Regional Library maintains a collection of over 400,000 photographs taken during geologic studies of the United States and its territories from 1868 to the present.
These images provide a visual history of the discovery, development, and sciences of the United States and its Geological Survey. Some photographs have been used in USGS publications, but most have never been published.
Currently, this website represents less than 10 percent of the Library’s images with approximately 30,000 photographs on-line.
Images can be downloaded at various resolutions.
