Research & Image Requests
Hidden City has developed a large base of historical research, bibliographies, and relationships with oral historians, scholars, and other experts on a diversity of topics and places in Philadelphia.
We also have an archive of more than 8,000 photographs of sites and the urban landscape, not to mention a network of photographers and urban documentarians, each with their own extensive collections.
Whether you are looking for a specific photo, research dossier, or simply advice on which experts to contact, we can help you out. Our work in this area falls into three kinds of engagement.
- Referrals & Questions (free with membership): If it’s an easy referral or question, we’re happy to assist cost-free, so long as you are a member (at some level) of Hidden City
- Our Photos & Research (some licensing costs): Requests for photographs and existing research that are owned by Hidden City may carry licensing fees depending on how you wish to use these resources.
- Custom Research Requests (fee for service): We can assist with more extensive, customized research or documentation requests, which will carry a modest fee based on scope and urgency.
