My large format b&w photographs of the Mission San Antonio de Valero (the Alamo) can now be ordered from the Historic American Building Survey (HABS) at the Library of Congress, as prints and as scans.  These photographs are an addendum to earlier images taken by Arthur Stewart in 1936, and Jack Boucher and W. Eugene George, Jr. in 1961. I am honored to be grouped with these fine photographers, and to have had the opportunity to photograph such an important building.

My photographs have been accepted by the Library of Congress, but scans of the images are not yet available on the Library of Congress website.  The captions have been posted, however, and prints can be ordered with that information. The new images are in three folders.  The new Church (the Alamo) photos are in the A folder.  The Convento (Long Barrack) photos are in the B folder.  One overall photo has been added to the original folder. If you are the first person to order a specific print, you will also have to pay for the scan of the image.  I have posted small scans of the negatives below to help you match image and caption.

These Mission photographs are in the public domain; this is standard procedure for new images submitted for HABS photography. However, there are some trademark restrictions on using images of the front facade of the Alamo.  You can contact the General Land Office of the State of Texas for more information on their trademark policy.  If you publish the photo, you should use the credit: Library of Congress, Prints & Photographs Division, HABS, Reproduction number [e.g., “HABS TX-318-A-15”].
