Above Ottumwa

Even before airplanes and helicopters made it possible to soar into the air above cities and towns, people liked to look down -- from hills, towers, tall buildings -- and capture the views they saw from on high.

Above Ottumwa includes high level and aerial photos of a Southeastern Iowa city through more than a hundred years of development.

Images from The Lemberger Collection

Photographer and archivist Michael W. Lemberger began collecting images at the age of eight when he discovered a cache of glass negatives in his great-aunt's attic. In the next 60 years he amassed more than a million negatives, including his own photographs and those of other professional and dedicated amateur photographers.

The Lemberger Collection (www.mlemberger.com) has been called the largest and best-documented privately-owned collection in the world.
