To assist researchers the Special Collections Research Center has prepared the Housing Association of Delaware Valley and Octavia Hill Association Photograph Collections Streets and Other Locations Index. This index provides access to identified photographs by Philadelphia street name or number, Philadelphia non-street locations, and non-Philadelphia locations. Other indexes to the Numbered Housing Association Collection are available by subject, date, and zip code. These indexes are only available in on site in the SCRC reading room until such time as they are converted to html and made available online.
