Pre-1990 Photography Map
This map is a counterpart to our primary oral photography map. This map is primarily meant for documenting the locations of structures that have been demolished before 1990; however, some structures that were in existence before 1942 that still exist will also appear on the map. Native American sites will not be mapped unless they are protected as a site by state or federal agencies in order to avoid our maps be used for looting.
The icons are color coded.
