Der Bildbestand der Deutschen Kolonialgesellschaft

Project by the Stadt- und Universitätsbibliothek Frankfurt am Main which gives online access to the photographic collection of the Deutsche Kolonialgesellschaft (1887-1936) comprising between 50.000 and 70.000 photos. The collection encompasses photos from Africa (Togo, Cameroon, Namibia, Tanzania and Burundi), China, Papua New Guinea, Palau, Micronesia (Mariana Islands, Marshall Islands) Nauru and West-Samoa.

Most images are scanned negatives and slides which are offered in small to medium size resolutions, not always sufficient to study the photos in detail.
