Thanks to former Filson president Rogers Clark Ballard Thruston, we are able to provide you view of Louisville on election day, 91 years ago. An engineer and historian, Mr. Thruston was also an avid photographer with an incredible attention to detail. Every photograph in the collection he left to the Filson is labeled with the level of detail you see in these. Mr. Thruston's collection spans 1902-1940 and contains approximately 20,000 images. See the Filson's online catalog for a full description of this treasure.
