If you're a photo nut like me, you may be scrolling through the posts on Brooklynology, thinking "Wow! These are awesome pics! I wonder if they have any more?" THOM 0083  Well, have I got news for you. The answer is YES!

For some instant gratification, start at the Historic Brooklyn Photo Galleries.  Browse through photos by selected themes such as neighborhoods, the Brooklyn Dodgers, and transportation.

If that's not enough, you can search more than 15,000 photographs in the BPL catalog.  If Coney Island is your thing, a simple keyword search will give you a list of books along with unique photographs from the Brooklyn Collection.CONE 0425 You can also find photos from the Historic Photos page, which searches the BPL catalog and gives you a list of thumbnail images. And if you find one you really like, you can buy a high resolution digital image or print. The reproduction fees support the preservation of these unique collections. So not only do you get art for your wall, you get that warm fuzzy feeling from supporting a worthy cause. We are adding photographs every day so keep coming back, and enjoy!
