Tarrant County Archives has an extensive collection of local and regional historical photographs, mainly from private sources. Some images are reference copies from other collections and not originals. Among these can be found early photographs of local buildings and street scenes as well as photographs of early residents and family life. Browsing the Named Collections and the Image Gallery will give the researcher some indication of our holdings. If you are seeking a particular subject, the Archives will be happy to help you.

Photographs below: These rare images were found in a box with no identification. The only information is on the reverse: "Finished by the Blessing Photo Supply Co. 315 Houston St. Fort Worth Texas" - research shows that the Blessing Photo Supply Co. opened at that address in 1900 and moved from that address to Main St. in 1921. If you have information regarding these persons or places you would like to share, please contact the Archives.
