Tech Tuesday: WPA Architectural Survey

  This might officially be my new favorite online feature. The Connecticut State Library has digitized the "WPA Old Houses Survey." Taken between 1934 and 1937, the survey recorded the basic details of and photographed old homes throughout Connecticut. You can search by town, type of dwelling, and keyword. Not every town is up, but there's enough there to get a feel for the flavor.

  2. Can you link to the digitized collection? I couldn't find it on the site.

    Thanks,

    My apologies. I thought the link had gone into the post. It's been fixed.

  4. Theresa, I agree completely. I've worked with the slave narratives. I was thrilled to learn about this one!
