V2 1999 INDEX       E-SYLUM ARCHIVE




The E-Sylum:  Volume 2, Number 36, September 5, 1999, Article 9

 FEATURED WEB SITE  

   As reported by Larry Mitchell on the Numislit mailing list, "Folks 
   interested in archival photographs of U.S. Mint operations will be 
   pleased to know that NARA (National Archives & Records 
   Administration) is slowly but surely making a selection of these 
   photographs available via the web.  

   The NARA NAIL project (NARA Archival Information 
   Locator)  will locate archival material in any media, but the 
   NAIL Digital Copies Search will be of especial interest to those 
   of us who collect photographs of early numismatic activities. 
   I just entered a search for "Mint" in "All Units" and "All Media" 
   and pulled up 72 photographs of such things as "Photograph of 
   San Francisco Mint employees in the Assayer's Office" and 
   "Photograph of San Francisco Mint employees working on the 
   account books."   The primary address is:  

      http://www.nara.gov/nara/searchnail.html "  

   My favorite from the collection is "Photograph of destruction 
   outside the San Francisco Mint after the 1906 Earthquake and 
   Fire."  

   Beware - these pictures are large and take some time to 
   download without a fast internet connection.
