The University of Central Arkansas has thousands of photographs that document the state's rich cultural history. This digital collection offers up online finding aids that cover 32 different thematic collections. While you can't search a comprehensive archive, interested parties can look through the aids, which do in fact contain hundreds of lovely photos. Collections include Black History, Education, Streetscapes, and American Women. Folks with a passion for the built environment should check out the Streetscapes collection first as it contains wonderful images of the Hot Springs business district in 1895, along with images of Little Rock, Conway, and other conurbations. Disasters is another fascinating set of photographs, as is Religion, which offers some perspectives on how worship practices have changed over time. Finally, the Ray Raines collection contains hundreds of photographs by Ray Raines who traveled around the state in the early 20th century convincing the people he met to copy their family photos.
