Many of these photographs were collected by Carl Landrum, a Quincy historian, throughout his lifetime. A number of these photos were published in the Quincy Herald-Whig, in which his articles ran from 1965 to 2003.

If you are a native of Adams County, I'm sure you will find these photos to be of great historical significance. The above websites have been instrumental in their efforts to archive this history through the hundreds of rare images collected, restored and compiled over the years. Please visit their sites.
