Vanished: Documenting a Forgotten Era of Little Rock’s Built Environment

The Keith family of Little Rock owned a large number of properties in the city in the first half of the twentieth century. Many of the buildings—mostly rental properties catering to lower- and middle-income citizens—were photographed for documentation. These historical photographs have been combined with modern street views to show how Little Rock’s built environment has changed over the years. Nearly all the structures are long gone.
