PPS Architectural Slide Collection Now Online

Published in Announcements, Preservation Notes.

A street view of Arch Street from the 1970s

Starting in 2018, with the help of many dedicated student interns, and grant support from Historic New England and the Herman H. Rose Fund, PPS worked to digitize our extensive photographic slide collection. These slides document Providence architecture from the 1950s-90s and demonstrate how our city developed and changed during the latter half of the 20th century.

The physical slide collection is now under the stewardship of our friends at the Providence Public Library.

Check out the collection! All properties are arranged alphabetically by street name, and range from triple-deckers to warehouses to school buildings from all of the city’s neighborhoods.

Special thanks go out to all the interns who worked so diligently on this project: Eliza Browning, Avery Corcoran, Delaney Daly, Clare McNamara, Joseph Napolitano, and Jina Pappas-Horii.
