At the end of 2007, we "retired," after more than ten years of activity, the Images of the Month Gallery. One of our purposes in presenting the galleries was to highlight parts of the collection not elsewhere represented on our web site. Now that we have been able to post several thousand images online -- digitized original photographs, photos from publications, maps, Mardi Gras invitations, and more -- there are fewer areas left for us to mine.

We did not get out of the monthly image business entirely, though. Beginning in 2008, a regular Image of the Month page debuted, featuring an image already available online elsewhere on the web site or an image that we had previously digitized but not yet posted online. The intention was to provide a more detailed description of the image content and the context in which it was created than we were generally able to do so when presenting larger groups of digitized material.
