Ringling Collection: Images of 19th Century Actors and Actresses

The Belknap Collection for the Performing Arts on the University of Florida Gainesville campus contains the Ringling Collection of postcards, photographs, and cabinet cards of male and female actors of America and Britain from the 19th century. Luckily, those visitors unable to make it to the warmer climes of Florida, can view the over 3700 images from the Collection that have been digitized for anyone, no matter their geographic location. Visitors can start browsing the collection by "Performers", "Themes", or "All Items". Once a category is chosen, visitors can then choose how they would like to view the images, such as "Table View", which just shows a rather compact list of titles of the image. "Thumbnail View" offers smaller versions of the image, along with the title, in a grid format. The "Themes" category can be fun for visitors to look at, with such themes as "Caricatures", "Baldness", "Cross Dressing", and "Urban Life". The "Advanced Search" link on the homepage gives visitors instructions on "Boolean Searching", "Phrase Searching", and "Diacritics".
