The Barnard - Stockbridge Museum in Wallace, Idaho displays images in large format of the photographs taken by Thomas Barnard and Nellie Stockbridge in their studio and in the surrounding community between 1893-1965.  The original collection of over 200.000 images is preserved in the University of Idaho Library Special Collections Unit.  It has been fully digitized and well indexed by subject, so it is a treasure of information for research purposes.  This collection is considered as the Best Photographic Collection in the Northwest United States, and one of the seven best collections in the United States.  The Museum has a Memorandum of Understanding with the University which allows the Museum full access to all the digitized images.  Those photographs are now being displayed in large format at the Museum.  This gives the viewer an ability to "discover" much more information in each picture because most were first published in a much smaller format for viewing in local newspapers.  Now the new expanded size allows one to count the number of persons searching for victims in a snow slide, find details of buildings in the background of parade pictures, and better understand the unique ability of Nellie Stockbridge to create truly remarkable portraits.
