Default Historical photos of Madison County

I'm interested in finding old photos (both historical and everyday) from the 1950s, 60s and 70s of Huntsville, Madison, Madison County etc.

Any ideas on who would be the best to contact? Local papers, city halls, DOT (for highway stuff)?

Whenever I am in an antique store there is always some big book with old photos.

Hartlex Antique Mall on Hughes in Madison, has a bunch.

The Depot downtown has just as many if not more.

Also the 4th floor of the Madison County Library in Huntsville, they have everything you are looking for.

I did this search myself about 3yrs ago.

Good Luck!

Wish I could remember the name, but I can't . There is a book with many historical photos of Huntsville. I am almost sure you can find it in the local section at Books A Million.
