In 1925, the Louisville Post and the Louisville Herald merged under the direction of James Buckner Brown. Under Brown's leadership this new publication became an influential force in local politics, and it made quite a run of it until folding for good in 1936. The paper's photo "morgue" was acquired by the University of Louisville Photographic Archives in 1994. Today, visitors can view over 3,800 digitized photographs from this collection, and they can get started by looking through the collection headings, which include "Military", "Cities & Towns", and "Ohio River". First-time users may want to start by looking through the "Historic Sites" area, as it includes some fine images of the Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historic Site in Hodgenville and several aerial views of Churchill Downs. Visitors can also use the search engine to look for specific materials, and overall, it's a great resource for persons with a passion for Kentucky history and United States history in general.
