We are happy to welcome the The Schlesinger Library to The Commons. The Schlesinger Library is part of the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University. It documents the history of women in America, and its holdings are strongest in women’s rights and feminism; health and sexuality; and culinary history.

As part of their first publications in The Commons, you can discover wonderful Daguerreotypes, photos of Greenwich Village businesses and from the Sally Fox Collection, as well as Suffrage posters.

Help make the photographs you enjoy more discoverable by adding tags and leaving comments. Your contributions and knowledge make these photos even richer. You can check out the whole selection in their sets, and we hope you enjoy this collection as much as we do.
