Our "CTA Photo Collection" photographs came to us in within a larger donation of images. These specific photgraphs were marked "CTA Photo Collection" and some have no other official markings. Those that do are clearly CTA photos, so we assume the rest are also. As always, we never want to infringe on anyone's photographic rights, so if you spot any that should not be here, please let us know.

Some photos are from the CSL ear while others are from the CTA era. The number is parenthesis under the photo descriptions is simply for our inventory purposes. Please ignore them.

Due to concerns expressed by some about rampant piracy of photos on the internet, restrictions have been placed on posting photos from the Museum's collection here. The requirements set forth state that they must be low res and watermarked. We apologize to the vast majority of our patrons who only use this site as intended, for personal enjoyment and information gathering.
