Welcome the Texas State Library and Archives and the Central University Libraries of Southern Methodist University to The Commons!
SMU’s six Central University Libraries have a wealth of digital history to peruse. Their sets include photographs from the Civil War, the Mexican Revolution, the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, the WWII Battle of Monte Cassino and Texas.
The Texas State Library and Archives enters The Commons with 4 sets of drawings created by the The Civilian Conservation Corps. These are the results of the work of the architects, engineers and draftsmen employed by the Corps, a U.S. federally funded New Deal program. If you like architectural sketches and maps, you’re going to love the high quality resolution images they’ve posted.
Texas is a state of mind. Texas is an obsession. Above all, Texas is a nation in every sense of the word. – John Steinbeck
Pssst – The Commons is the worlds’ public photography archives; we invite you to help describe the photographs you discover in The Commons on Flickr, either by adding tags or leaving comments.
