(Digital Collections) Small But Mighty: Introducing the Armstrong Browning Library Photographic Archive

Boy howdy, it’s been a few days since we last blogged! [Checks calendar, sees it’s been almost two months, feels regret.] Let’s make up for that today, shall we?

We’re excited to announce the launch of a new collection based on holdings of the Armstrong Browning Library. The new Photographic Archive will feature items digitized from the photographic holdings of the ABL, starting with the ten photos from the Julia Margaret Cameron (1815-1879) Collection. The collection includes several images of Robert Browning, the son of the poet Alfred, Lord Tennyson and family and friends of the photographer. A few examples can be seen below, or click here to view the entire collection in our Baylor University Libraries Digital Collections site.
