The Images of the Month Gallery was one of the NOPL website's earliest features, begun soon after our web page's inauguration on April Fool's Day, 1995. Each month, the Gallery presented a series of thematically linked images from the Louisiana Division collections or from the City Archives. The Gallery was discontinued at the end of 2007, and replaced by the Image of the Month, featuring a single image chosen from our collections, and the Pamphlet of the Month, featuring a digitized version of one of the many historical pamphlets in our collections.

This page offers a look back at past Galleries. A few are missing, but there's plenty here to see.
