Small Photos, Big Personalities!

Don’t let their size fool you! These little treasures that make up our “small photo collection” are full of surprises.  We have hundreds of pocket-sized images of all kinds of Richmonders, from actors to assassins.  If you’d like to come take a look, the archives are open to researchers.
