The Connecticut State Library has recently completed the digitization of the Blizzard of 1888 photographs (PG 448), which is now available in its digital collections, Flickr site, and Historypin channel. The collection consists of 72 photographs taken of Hartford and its immediate surroundings both during and after the blizzard. The photographs are almost exclusively albumen prints taken by photographers E.P. Kellogg, R.C. Buell, William B. Lloyd, and William H. Lockwood. Lockwood compiled 37 photographs into a book entitled, “The Great Snow Storm,” which he donated to the Connecticut State Library in 1916.
