As we sort through the archive, scanning and cataloguing thousands of images, we occasionally come across photographs of places, scenics, and groups of people. These images are also included in the SHPA, and can be accessed separately by simply entering an asterisk (*) into the search field. Similarly, the unidentified images can be isolated by entering a cross-hatch (#) into the search field.
