Historic Texas Photographs
This set contains samples from the ''Lawrence T. Jones III Texas Photographs'' and ''Texas: Photographs, Manuscripts, and Imprints'' digital collections from Southern Methodist University's Central University Libraries.

The Jones collection is one of the most comprehensive and valuable Texas-related photography collections. It documents all aspects of Texas photography and history, including the various types practiced from its earliest introduction to the state: daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, tintypes, stereographs and paper print photographs in various formats.

The online and physical collections depict a large array of subjects and styles, and examples by numerous photographers, both professional and itinerant, who documented the history of Texas, the contiguous states and Mexico.

The digital collection includes cartes-de-visite, cabinet cards, oversized photos, stereographs, and more. The subjects of the photos include Confederate and Union soldiers and officers in the Civil War; Mexicans, including ranking military officials from the Mexican Revolution; and a wide spectrum of Texan citizens, including African American, Indian, Hispanic, and Caucasian women, men, and children.

The photographs and information related to photos provide a unique glimpse into the social and domestic history, architecture, transportation, ranching, agriculture, commerce, material culture, costume, and urban and rural history of Texas.

The full digital collections are available at digitalcollections.smu.edu/all/cul/jtx and digitalcollections.smu.edu/cdm4/browse.php?CISOROOT=/tex.
