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. We do have a photograph catalog available online, with new images being uploaded all the time. You may also send us an e-mail to see if we have images you may be interested in.
