In the 1920s, student Sydnia Keene Smythe, at work on her master’s thesis, took photographs of several antebellum homes around Tuscaloosa, buildings that most likely don’t exist anymore but whose architecture was luckily captured for posterity. These images make up just one of many small but fascinating photo collections housed at W. S. Hoole Special Collections Library and delivered digitally in Acumen.
