Photo Sampler (SHSI-Des Moines)
The State Historical Society of Iowa (SHSI) collects, preserves, and makes available the visual record of the state as part of its agency mission. Our collection of nearly half a million photographs represents a wide range of Iowa subject matter and communities, and includes specimens of photography in all of its historic forms--from daguerreotype to digital.

This gallery provides a sampling of the images available in the SHSI holdings at our Des Moines location.

We invite you to further explore our photograph collections by visiting the reading rooms in Des Moines and Iowa City.
