Robert E. Williams Photographs, 1872-1898

Robert E. Williams was an African-American photographer who had his own studio in Augusta, Georgia from 1888 to 1908. During this period Williams took thousands of photos documenting domestic life, dwellings, baptism rituals, harvesting and transporting cotton, vehicles and transportation, and family life. The staff members at the University of Georgia have curated this collection of 84 images from Williams' work to provide insights into his art as well as the area's history. Visitors can look through the images at their leisure or use the search function as well. The site is rounded out by a wonderful section about the archival collection.
