These photos are available thanks to the Strahorn Library and Museum Volunteer Joe Stupar's time spent scanning them.

The photos in this section are from a subdirectory titled "Skokie Valley". These photos may or may not be from there, but in order to keep track of where we can find the photos in the future if need be, we have kept that title for this section.

The photo captions are taken from information written on the slides/photos and/or from research. The numbers preceding the captions are simply inventory numbers and can be ignored.

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.
