Digital NC is happy to welcome more additions from Jewish Historical Society of Greater Charlotte located at the Levine-Sklut Judaic Library Resource Center! 30 new photos add rich documentation of the Jewish community in Charlotte, with images dating from 1890 t0 1983.

These are the first images provided by the Judaic Library and they offer a window into Charlotte’s past. Many of the images include well-researched descriptions that provide the names and dates of important people and businesses that helped Charlotte become the Queen City that we know today. Most of the descriptions contain  specific locations, making it possible to Geo-tag the images, which are in prominent places at the city center.

Below are a few highlights from the collection:
