The Norman photographic collection is literally a treasure. The approximately 75,000 prints and negatives that comprise this collection were acquired (and saved from destruction) in 1960 by Dr. Thomas Gandy, a Natchez physician. After years of work in printing, organizing, and identifying the negatives, Dr. Gandy and his wife Joan have selected over two-hundred photographs to be reproduced in Norman's Natchez: An Early Photography and His Town. These photographs provide a remarkable visual record of the unique town of Natchez, Mississippi, from the Civil War through the glittering Victorian era into the twentieth century. Henry C. Norman was a professional photography in Natchez from 1870 until his death in 1913. The massive collection from which the book was created contains not only his work, but also that of photographer Marsh and Henry Gurney for whom Norman first worked. The Gurney brothers started their photographic studio in Natchez in 1851 and recorded the people and scense of this bustling river town during its decade of greatest wealth. In stark contrast, the Gurney photos of the following decade show the somber tone of war- Confederate volunteers, Federal gunboats, and deserted streets.
