Help Us Identify Frankfort Photographs
KHS needs historians, neighbors, genealogists and other community members to help provide more information about the people, places and events represented in photographs in our John J. King collection.
Join us Saturday, Oct. 25, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History, for a Piecing Together History open house.
The collection includes about 400 photographs taken in Frankfort between 1900 and 1942. Subjects are King’s friends and family and include downtown streets, parades, the Kentucky River, sports (swimming, boating, football, horseback riding, archery, baseball, tennis), the Singing Bridge and many more Frankfort landmarks.
People who cannot come, can help. To view any part of the collection, go here and search for “Graphic 12.” Submit image-specific information using the comments section at the bottom of each online image. Have a specific question about the J.J. King Photographs? Contact the KHS Reference Desk, 502-564-1792, ext. 4460.
