The Photograph Collection consists of several collections of photographs and scrapbook photo albums. The digitized scans can be found in our Digital Archives. Digitization of this collection is ongoing and more will be added as time permits. As a publicly supported institution Hawaiʻi State Archives does not charge permission fees for use of images and cannot give or deny permission to publish or otherwise distribute images in its collections. It is the user’s obligation to determine and satisfy copyright or other use restrictions when publishing or otherwise distributing materials found in the Archives’ collections.
