Photo Archives

The Cape Ann Museum Photo Archives contains over one million images of people, places and things, all relating to Cape Ann. Dating from the 1840s to the present. These include daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, paper print stereographs, cartes de visite, cabinet cards, and film and glass negatives. 

Through ongoing digitization efforts, we will continue to add new materials and collections over time.
