Welcome

Alfred “Alfie” Mueller

Alfie Mueller was a lifelong Galena resident and collector of old photographs and memorabilia.  Throughout his lifetime, Alfie collected over 10,000 photographs, lithographs, and artifacts from Galena and the surrounding area.  These pages contain just a fraction of that collection, including the photo of Alfie below, along with photos from his childhood home at 411 Wight Street.

How does it work?

Click on a category link to view thumbnails, like the three you see below.  Be patient – some pages have a lot of photos and take a long time to load, but it is worth the wait!  Click a thumbnail to enlarge the photo.  Once enlarged, click the left and right arrows to scroll through the photos on that page, and click the x in the upper right hand corner to return to the page.
