Robert W. Krueger Photograph Collection

In 1984, the Library began working with local photographer Robert Krueger to document the North Side.

Krueger photographed hundreds of restaurants, street scenes, parks, businesses, schools, houses, cemeteries, religious institutions, community events and residents of North Side neighborhoods. These photographs are a sample of his work.

The Robert W. Krueger Photograph Collection is housed in the Northside Neighborhood History Collection.
