Browsing Basics

Links Make It Easy
Why think up search queries, when you can simply click on links to explore the Cushman Collection! Each browse option contains a menu page, either chronologically or alphabetically organized, that you can easily scan.

Number of Results
Next to each link, you will see the number of results that will be generated. Some links will generate only a few results while others can generate thousands.

For the larger sets, keep in mind that you can always refine your browse results in the Results page by using the search box provided. Just type a new term, select the "refine search" option and click the "Go!" button.

For example, if you browse 1952, which has over 1,000 images, you can type "San Francisco" in the refine search box found on the Results page to see images taken only in San Francisco during 1952.

You can also use the Browse Suggestions provided to refine your result set by adding location, genre, and/or subject facets.


Browse by Year

Example of Browse by Year menu Thirty-two years, from 1938-1969, are available for browsing one year at a time (see example on right).

You will also find an "Unknown" link that generates images with unknown dates.
