"Picturing the Century: One Hundred Years of Photography
from the National Archives" opened March 12, 1999 and is on display
in the Circular Gallery of the National Archives Building in Washington,
DC, through July 4, 2001. In early 2000 many of the photographs in the
original exhibition were replaced with others from the holdings of the
National Archives. The photographs in this on line presentation were
drawn from the first version of the exhibition.
