Pierce County Photographs

Villages, towns, schools, churches, street scenes, buildings, mills, people—these and many more photographs and images can be found in our collections. Some are in color, but most are black-and-white or sepia-toned.  

We have a growing collection of Pierce County postcards, some commercially produced but many "real photo" postcards—photographs printed on postcard stock instead of photographic paper. Eventually we will have our photograph catalog available online, but until then send us an e-mailmail to see if we have images you may be interested in.   

Express written permission is required to reproduce any image held by the University Archives and Area Research Center. The user is liable for any violation of copyright or donor agreement. The researcher assumes full responsibility for conforming with laws of libel, privacy, and copyright which may be involved in his/her use of photographs, manuscripts and all other records.
