The collections have been in the Toledo's Attic collection since the beginning of the project.  Many of these sets also appear throughout the essays and various narratives in Toledo's Attic.  Most photographs come from the manuscript collections at the Ward M. Canaday Center at the University of Toledo while some others (news clippings and book pages) have been included with permission and through fair use.  Many images are also in the public domain.  Links appearing next to the collection titles will open a related essay and/or a searchable digital collection.
