The slides subseries includes images of railways in Indiana, the American south, and elsewhere; architecture in Louisville and the eastern US; steamboats and other aspects of river travel; buses; and the Western US. Negatives include family photographs, and railway images. Print photographs include images of railroads, rail stations, street cars, and electric lines.
