The Sechtl family has been in the photography business for over 150 years, and they have been working on digitizing their extensive archive for use by the general public. Of course, visitors can also visit their museum in the Czech Republic, but this website functions as a great entry point for learning about their body of work. Visitors may wish to start their journey by reading some of the family biographies offered here, and then moving on to the actual archive. Using the archive can be a bit tricky, so new visitors may wish to start by browsing through categories like "castles", "tableauxs", and "sport". The archive provides a number of visual insights into the history of the Czech people, urban life, and the culture of this very diverse region.
