The Callahan Photo Collection
This is a group of photographs taken about 1896-1905 by Griffin Callahan of old and historic sites located all around the Eastern Shore of Virginia. All are in black and white and were scanned into a computer by the Library of Virginia. These photos were donated to us by Doran S. Callahan for which we are truly grateful. There may be some fond memories here and just might invoke some ancestral interest. These photos will reveal much about the lifestyle and culture of the Eastern Shore inhabitants of one or two centuries ago. Many of these old buildings are still standing and are in daily use after being lovingly restored to their original architectural splendor by succeeding generations. You are encouraged to let your imagination put yourself in the center of this scenery and to relive the moments enjoyed by our ancestors.
