ABOUT THE ARCHIVE
The images in this living archive were scanned from prints and negatives used in The Globe and Mail newsroom from the late 19th century until the transition to digital in the 1990s. With the Archive of Modern Conflict, more than 100,000 prints from The Globe and Mail newsroom have been digitized. New photographs, and their hand-transcribed notes, are added to the feature each week.
