A Window into America's Past
Pictures of Old Louisville in Autumn

fountain.jpg (59763 bytes)This is a series of pictures taken in November 1998, actually a bit past the peak of fall colors.  There are two big problems in trying to photograph Old Louisville.  First are the multitudes of telephone poles and power lines that are strung throughout the area and seem to be inconveniently placed in front of some of the most picturesque buildings.  We are assured that nothing will be done about these, for the reasons of expense and apathy.  The second problem  is also one of Old Louisville's greatest assets:  its thousands of stately trees.  Old Louisville claims one of the largest collections of old growth timber in the region, giving the area fine shaded avenues and an abundance of birds, squirrels, and even racoons!  It's just a problem taking pictures that show long streetscapes during late spring, summer, or early fall.

This collection of photographs is divided by streets and areas, and still represent only a fraction of the district near its center:  The thumbnail and image pages are designed to load in under 20 seconds for most modem speeds.  Click on one of the links below to go to the thumbnail page.
