Vintage Photo Publishing Project Now Under Way! 977 Photos Uploaded through Jan. 15, 2009!
This website, MobileBayVintagePhotos.com, has been developed by Blue Mullet Web Services, Fairhope, AL as an internet resource for the open publication of photographic works of an historic nature which relate to the Mobile Bay region of Alabama. Please share this website with anyone who might be interested in exploring the culture and history of the area!
The primary mission of this website is to make previously unpublished photographic materials available to the general public without copyright restrictions.
Therefore, you may copy any photo on this website for any use. If you do copy and re-publish photos from this website, we would appreciate you siting this source, www.MobileBayVintagePhotos.com but this is not required. The photos on this website have been made available to the public copyright-free.
Most of the 900+ photos currently published on MobileBayVintagePhotos.com are of the Fairhope, AL - Mobile, AL area and date to pre-1914. A few are of the Chicago area.
The current photos shown are from the Arthur M. Dealy and the Slosson Family Collections which were donated in 2008 to the Fairhope Single Tax Corporation. These collections of photos were placed into the public domain by the families involved, and have never before been published in their entirety. This generous gift to the public by the Arthur M. Dealy Family, the Slosson Family, and the Fairhope Single Tax Corporation is acknowledged and appreciated.
We request that if you, or anyone you might know, who could have information that relates to the identity of any person, place, or event shown in any photo in this collection, please provide the reference number shown for any photo that you know something about, and call or send us an email.
Lastly, if you have vintage photos, dating before 1950, that you would like to see published on MobileBayVintagePhotos.com, please contact Dan Therrell, Blue Mullet Web Services, at 251-510-8820 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. No promises can be made as to publication, but we are always on the lookout for vintage photographs that depict the interesting history, and life and times of the Mobile Bay region. We are very interested in photos of old bay boats, ferry boats, and water-related scenes.
