New England Photographic Archive is the Photographic Preservation Center's virtual archive of images from glass plate negatives.  The photographs are presented as an introduction to the institutions that physically house the glass plates.  Please visit the museums, libraries and historical societies that safeguard these historic images that document our cultural heritage. All items within The New England Photographic Archive are copyrighted.


There's little information about the this collection of glass plate negatives. They are part of Dan Crowley's collection of photographic memorabilia. There are several references to the town of Ware Massachusetts and it is here where we start our research. If you recognize any image please let us know. Thank you
