The collection has been assembled by The Picture Archive of the Austrian National Library (ANL), Austria’s largest picture documentation centre and the centre for the ordering of digital images of all holdings and collections. Users can access the collection through the Austria Picture Archive, an image platform of the library. Within this Catalogue, users can also search by districts, streets, house numbers, as well as by the names of main buildings.
