Many basic questions about documentary photography answered.

Curt Teich Postcard Archives
Museum dedicated to the Curt Teich Publishing Company which was located in Chicago.  Displays expanded to include the broad history of postcards.  Very searchable.  I have used several Curt Teich postcards for illustration on ChicagoSee.
Full of useful information including a directory of worldwide photographers.

American Memory Projects
The government, of course, has the money to create such an elaborate site with thumbnails for all the photos.  The FSA photos are the model for photography documentation.

The Labor
Chicago Center for Working Class Studies produced this country's first city map of Workers' points of interests.  Mail them $5.00.  Homage to Boston's Freedom Trail map which has tyranny as the enemy.  What they can do to us, what we can do together.  The Labor Struggle.  See my picture of Sam Adams' gravesite.  (Not the beer!)  No. .

Labor Museum
Near St. Louis, MO.  Southwest of Chicago.  But, how many public Museums are dedicated to Workers?
