This list provides an interim overview of the geographical distribution of images in the Detroit Publishing Company collection. For example, it clearly indicates that the largest number of photographs were made in the eastern United States and that, even within the East, some states are far better covered than others.
At this time, the list is not hyperlinked to the collection's bibliographic database and users will have to key in search terms for themselves.
Users should note that the Library's current implementation of Inquery search software does not yet support searches limited to specific catalog fields, e.g., the field in which place names are found.
For these reasons, a user wishing to find all of the photographs from a given state may have to execute a series of searches that combine the state name and an additional word or term. Users are warned that the collection includes large numbers of photographs of naval vessels and other ships, many of which are named for states and cities. Users are also warned that, since the Detroit Publishing Company created the photographs, any search that uses the noun Detroit will summon every photograph in the collection.
