PhotographsAmerica.com's highest-quality 16"x20" prints, on the finest photographic paper, representing the best of 30 years of unforgettable images by renowned photographer Carol M. Highsmith, were produced in every state, every major city, nearly all our national parks and great battlefields, smaller cities and towns and crossroads, and across our unforgettable landscape. And her associate, photographer Brendan Reals, contributes stunning photographs from the nation's wildest, highest, and most remote places.
PhotographsAmerica.com also offers thousands of nostalgic vintage photographs explicitly selected from the treasured Library of Congress Collection. They include irreplaceable glimpses of earlier times; captivating circus, Depression-era, and theater posters; and extraordinary color "photochromes" from the turn of the 20th Century. These were wonderful black-and-white images that were artistically colorized and turned into the world's first, beloved color postcards. The staff at PhotographsAmerica.com has meticulously restored all of our vintage images to minimize imperfections and the degradations of time.
The Historic America category is the place to find timeless photographs - everything from early Mathew Brady daguerreotypes to current images of landmark structures and scenes across America - and from Civil War relics to unforgettable lighthouses and classic cars, to ever-changing and, in some cases, fast-disappearing remnants of our culture. There's even a special archive of great Abraham Lincoln and "Lincolniana" photographs. And in the Vintage Color Classics subcategory, you'll see the "Photochroms" - they were originally spelled without the "e" - mentioned above.
Historic America includes these memorable views of:
° PA panoramic view of Honolulu, showing not just Waikiki beach and the array of luxury hotels that line it, but also the verdant Oahu countryside behind them. SKU 404
° Cinders and smoke belching from the unique and colorful cog railway engines chugging down (in this case) Mount Washington in New Hampshire's serene White Mountains. SKU: 932
° The gate to Graceland, Elvis Presley's iconic mansion in Memphis, Tennessee. Note that the gates, rarely closed in the daytime, have the appearance of a musical score - one of "The King's" innumerable hits, perhaps. Sku: 1O-N6QV-P10E
