Thomas H. and Joan W. Gandy Photograph Collection

The Louisiana Digital Library has a wide array of historical collections that document everything from Acadian culture to the vibrancy of Mardi Gras in New Orleans. This particular collection brings together photographs of Natchez from photographers Henry Norman, Henry Gurney, and Earl Norman. Visitors can make their way through over 160 images here, such as shots of barbershops, prominent buildings, distinguished antebellum mansions, and scenes of everyday life. The informal photos are quite wonderful; visitors shouldn't miss "Card game" or the "Children and Snowmen" image. As a whole, the collection answers a number of compelling questions, including "How did people dress to have their pictures taken?" and "What did Natchez-Under-The-Hill look like in the late 1800s?"
