The Department of Transportation State Photolog Highway films contain sequential images of the highway and its environs taken at equal increments of distance from a moving vehicle at driver’s eye level. The film documents such information as number of lanes, surface type, pavement markings, signs and hazards. It provides a permanent record or history of any one state highway at a given time. Additional information is included in the frame of the image, such as date, route description, direction and milepoint. All state roads were filmed in both directions.
The collection includes 197 black and white photographs of residential architecture and street views in Providence, Rhode Island taken by Lawrence E. Tilley in 1958. The photographs document the College Hill neighborhood.
