Scope of Collection

This collection features photographs and illustrations of churches, convents, parish houses, and other religious buildings in the city of Albany. The buildings span many architectural styles and religious denominations, and many photographs show the interiors of these remarkable buildings, some of which no longer exist. In many cases, the ornate interiors of the buildings are visible. Although not all the photographs are dated, they appear to be from the late 19th and early 20th century.
