Looking for Images? Here's Another Online Collection

The New York Public Library recently released 180,000 public domain images online, and of course we had to look for materials related to Montana. Approximately 200 plus stereographs and photographs relating to Montana are available for browsing and use.
You can also experience the three-dimensionality of stereographs with the tool Stereogranimator available here http://stereo.nypl.org/ or click through the Stereogranimator link under any of the stereographs presented in the NYPL collection.

Speaking of stereos, several of my colleagues forwarded me this post on "Teaching Geography through the Stereoscope," an interesting look at lesson plan from 1908 about how to teach with images.

For more modern ideas for using photos in your classroom, look at these posts on the Teaching Montana History blog, organized under the tag "photographs."
