The Adirondack Research Library is proud to announce a collection of historic images are now available online. The Osmond D. Putnam Photographs (ARL-081) contain 132 original glass plate negatives taken in the 1880s. The images document rural education, ecological destruction from logging, homesteading, mountain views and the people of Johnsburg, NY. Although select prints survive at other institutions, most images are being seen for the first time in over a century.
