In coordination with the Athenaeum of Philadelphia, the Library Company has recently added collections to the Philadelphia Architects and Buildings (PAB) website. Unlike previous records supplied by the Library Company, the newly uploaded collections include digital images of the original photographs, further enhancing the records. Recently uploaded collections include the William and Frederick Langenheim Stereograph Collection, the McAllister & Brother Church Photograph Collection, and the James McClees Philadelphia Photograph Collection, with more to follow.
