Database Development

This database was prepared as an easy way to look at historical data and images from Madison's past. The database is a work in progress and will be expanded and refined as time permits. The database currently concentrates on the John Nolen Drive Corridor and Olin-Turville Parks area but may be expanded to include other areas of Madison in the future.

 

The hyperlinks in this database lead to historical images and data on the internet or to other sections of the database. The images and data may have copyright and permission requirements for use of the image or data in a public manner (publication, website, public display).  Many of the images may not be displayed in a public manner, sold or redistributed, copied or distributed as a photograph, electronic file, or any other media without written permission from the owner of the image or data on the hyperlinked website.

[1] Note: The background of this image shows the center portion of the State Office Building on Wilson Street under construction. Since this portion of the building was completed in 1938, it is believed that the original photograph was taken in early 1937.

[2] Note: Due to the location of buildings and other skyline features in this image, this photograph was most likely taken from the Monona Bay area.
