Searching for Places

If you're looking for images of a particular place and time, try searching Google Images with terms like this:

historic photos youngstown ohio train overpass

Remember when you are searching online that there are two ways to spell it: theater and theater. If you search for theat* it will look for both (and theatrical, theaters, etc.)
