Memphis Heritage is proud to announce that a long time dream we have had to put the Don Newman photographic collection online
is now a reality.
The Don Newman online website is:
to view and order from this website
Don Newman's stunning photographs of Memphis during the 40's, 50's, and 60's can now be purchased from this website. We currently have over 150 images available on the site, with more being added weekly. One exciting component of the archive site is that searches are now available for all images. For example, if you are searching for a photo of Main Street just type in "Main Street" and those images that include Main Street will be identified. Or if you are looking for a specific store, type in the store's name and if it is listed in the search options all the pictures with this store in them will be identified.
We have gone GLOBAL...
Memphis Heritage is excited to make Newman's work available to a world wide audience!
Please visit the new site today.
