Milwaukee Neighborhoods: Photos and Maps, 1885-1992

Many cities recognize that residents have a close attachment to their neighborhoods, and despite talk of a diminished sense of community, many urban-dwellers still feel a close affinity to their particular locale. Quite a few cities have begun to develop multimedia archives that explore their city's history, with a special focus on individual neighborhoods. This most recent digital exhibit presents images of Milwaukee neighborhoods from the city's far northwest side to the far south side. Drawing on a number of fine collections, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Libraries offer these various images (primarily maps and photographs) from the mid-1880s to the early 1990s. Here visitors can click on an interactive map of the city to explore the various images for each area, and read a fine introductory overview of this work by Professor Judith Kenny, titled Picturing Milwaukee's Neighborhoods. Along with browsing the collection by geographic locale, visitors can perform searches throughout the entire collection, or elect to browse the collection by subject or date of photograph.
