Rehkop/Peterson Studio Glass Plate Negative Collection
Photos in the Rehkop/Peterson Studio glass plate negative
collection have been posted in a group on the flickr website. This collection contains a large number of
photos of individuals, groups, buildings, and activities, not only from the
Concordia area, but other locations in western Lafayette
County that were serviced by this
You can access these photos by clicking on the following
This will bring up a display of all of the photos in the
collection. To locate specific photos, click on the magnifying glass at the far
right of the line just above the top row of photos (i.e. after "View xxxx
photos"). Then, in the search box
at the very top of the page, enter a search string (like concordia baseball) to
limit the display to just those photos.
You can then click on one of the thumbnails to bring up the display of a
particular photo. At this point, one can
use the normal flickr controls to expand or download the photo or make
comments. (See instructions below.)
Note. Using the
search capability of flickr can be a bit confusing. If the "Back to search' arrow is still
displayed in the upper left of the window, you can use it to select another
photo or enter a new search. However. if
you make any changes to the display of a photo, that control may change to
'Back to photostream' and the
search will no longer be limited to this collection. So a large group of photos may then be displayed .
To restrict the search, you essentially have to start over using the
link above (or possibly use the backarrow of your browser).
of 4/30/2017, all photos in the collection that were recognizable (or
at least partially) have been uploaded but not all of them have been
tagged. So searches are limited.
