For students

Are you ready to be an image detective? What do you think we can learn about history just by looking at an old photograph?

Search for clues in each photograph to see if you can determine the WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, WHY, and HOW for each image. Don't worry, there are questions for each image to help you discover all there is to know about these old photographs.

Are you ready? What history theme would you like to investigate?
