Erie County (PA) Genealogy

Old Time Photos


This page contains links to old time photographs and scanned images, including postcards. Please direct to me at Bill Klauk's email any 'old time' photographs, post cards, or other images of either historic buildings or other scenes (not current pictures!). I will create an on-line album or appropriate photo service album. If you have old pictures of identified people associated with Erie County [this could include scanned images from the old Erie County Histories or any other book not covered by copyright], please also direct them to me, but please note that people picture albums and web pages will now be linked on the Faces of Erie County page.
