Agency History
Photographs taken or gathered by Official Photographers of the Department of Public Works, 1894-1951; Department of City Transit, 1914-1951; Departments of Streets, Water, and Public Property, 1952-1963; Department of Records, 1964-date. Added to these are numbers of photographic copies of older prints of City maps, views, etc., which are useful supplements to this and other records series. While the original negative number series and order established by each photographer has been preserved for the negatives, prints are currently being catalogued and filed according to location and subject to facilitate reference.
