Historic Photos of Madison

Text and captions by Donald J Johnson

Old photos are always fun to look at, but this collection is especially fun as so many locations in Madison (WI) are still in existence. The collection starts at the very earliest days of Madison’s history and follows it through major events, such as the creation of Camp Randall for the training of Civil War soldiers, the founding of the University, multiple incarnations of the state capital building, and plenty of shots of the downtown and capital square. An enjoyable look at yesteryear and how much has – and hasn’t – changed in Madison.
