Research Library's Historic Photographs and Illustrations

The Library's historic photographs and illustrations include drawings of the Virgin Islands from 1843-1844 by Henry Morton, drawings from 1856 by Dr. Allen Voorhees Lesley, and an extensive photographic collection from Axel Ovesen, an early photographer in Frederiksted (1902-1972). In addition, there are street scenes from Christiansted and Frederiksted and images of buildings from both the towns and country estates in the 19th and 20th centuries. Numerous photographs of individuals have also been reproduced from family albums for the research collections.
