Our archives holds a number of illustrated promotional publications from the 1890s and early 1900s that provide general information about Greensboro and document local businesses, business owners, and both commercial and residential buildings. Known to us as “Pictorials,” they are an excellent source of visual and informational history about the city.
The Pictorials Collection has been digitized through the generosity of the Digital Projects Unit at UNCG. The entire collection is accessible through Textiles, Teachers, and Troops: Greensboro Pictorials, and direct links to the individual titles are provided below.
