City of Tampa, Florida: City of Tampa to Release Two Newly Digitized Historic Photo Collections. “The Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce Collection was donated to the City of Tampa in 1994 by Tampa Historical Society. It contains more than 30,000 images of events in Tampa from about 1950 until 1990. Many local elected officials and other dignitaries are featured in this collection. The Tampa Photo Supply Collection includes more than 50,000 images taken by local photographers Rose Rutigliano Weekley and Joseph Scolaro from 1940 until 1990. The collection primarily focuses on West Tampa, Ybor City, and South Tampa.” This is a work in progress and the collections are still being added to.
