About Us

Snapshots of the Past was founded in May 2001 in Pittsburgh. We are now entering our 14th year thanks to the efforts of hundreds of hardworking people over the past decade, not to mention the outstanding work of the Library of Congress for a decade or two before that.

Snapshots was one of the first companies to make images in the archives of the Library of Congress publicly available as museum-quality, fine art reproductions. Over the past decade, we have sold to tens of thousands of customers online and through hundreds of specialty retailers across the country. We now offer customers the ability to purchase beautiful archival prints of some of the Library’s most popular collections directly through our website.

We have prepared our galleries for both researchers and consumers alike and the site will ultimately contain hundreds of hand-curated galleries drawn from Library's archives. Browsers can search by keyword to find any person, place, or event in history, or browse different galleries by themes of interest.

Reproduction prints are created using some of the most respected brands of fine art / archival paper in the industry. Prints made with archival paper and pigmented inks can be enjoyed for a lifetime and passed down for generations to come.  We offer a 60-day, no-questions-asked, money back guarantee on all of our offerings.
