Hesler digitization

The NUAMPS digitization studio is in the midst of digitizing some Evanston-specific works by the 19th century photographer, Alexander Hesler. The project, for the NU Library, involves the imaging of the Picturesque Evanston album, produced by Hesler in 1887, featuring photographs of Evanston at that time, including thoroughfares, homes, churches and University buildings. Hesler was also famous for his many portraits of Abraham Lincoln, an example of which is shown here.
