First established in 1931, Evanston Photographic Studios has an archive of original photographs dating back to 1931 and beyond. Some of the images we have even date back to the turn of the century—the previous turn of the century, that is!
The Evanston Historical Society, Northwestern University and the Hilton Garden Inn display some of our archived images and have copies of our photographs in their archives.
While most of these archival photos are cataloged so that we can search and find specific images, digitizing 100’s of 1,000’s of photos will be an ongoing project for quite some time. However, we can often locate photos to meet your needs.
If you are interested in finding photos of Evanston, the Chicago North Shore and the people, places and events that have shaped our area, please contact us. Photo research and digitizing is based on an hourly rate and we can provide you with an estimate.
Prints can be ordered and certain images may even be licensed for the appropriate fees. All rights to all of the archives and the images are reserved.
