Search our online photo archive of over 27,500 images by catalog number, keyword, date or photographer. If you have a question about any photograph, please contact Collections.
Additional work is ongoing to add new images to our collections all the time. We upgraded our online process, allowing us to add new images as they are added to the database. Be patient, as we are still working through some bugs to speed up the load time.
NOTICE (3/30/2022): We are currently experiencing problems with the display of our photo archives. We are aware of the problem and are having conversations with the corporation that hosts our image database. We hope to have the Photo Research archives back online soon.
Good news! In 2020, over 7000 mages from the George Lindsay collection, donated by The Dalles Chronicle, were scanned, cataloged, and put online. The Lindsay collection spans the 1940s through the 1970s in the Mid Columbia area. This project was funded in part through a grant from the Oregon Heritage Commission, with technology upgrades funded by a grant from Google. To see images from that collection simply enter “TDC” into the catalog number field and hit search.
