City Photographs

This sub-site of provides access to about 2000 city photographs taken by J.H. Crawford since 1997. With few exceptions, these photographs are from Europe. Nearly all photographs were taken in the older and more central parts of cities.

Photographs can be retrieved either by place or by category, and within each of these classifications by orientation (horizontal/vertical).

These photographs are available for personal use and for use by certain non-profit organizations. See the Terms of Use for details. I would really prefer that you not crop these photographs, but I won't insist on this condition.

View by Place

Place names are indicative, not definitive, as shown by the following examples:
  • USA includes a couple of photographs from Canada.
  • Photographs from one Venetian sestieri may actually be from one nearby.
  • New York includes some photographs in nearby Newark.
If you absolutely need to know, please send me the image as an e-mail attachment and I'll see if I can figure it out.

View by Category

The subject categories are quite extensive and may seem whimsical, which they are not. Classifications were done very rapidly and are neither complete nor necessarily correct, but they may nonetheless be useful when searching for a suitable image. Many images are classified in slightly conflicting categories, for instance, as both a "Square - Large" and a "Square - Medium"

The larger categories contain only photographs I consider to be of higher quality; the Place listings include all photographs.

Higher-resolution versions of specific images can be made available, but it's a lot of work. Please don't ask unless you're willing to pay.
