The Getty has put its Palmyra photos online.

AWOL BLOG: Online Exhibit at the Getty: The Legacy of Ancient Palmyra.

Back in 2015 I noted the acquisition, by the J. Paul Getty Trust, of Louis Vignes's mid-nineteenth-century photographs of Palmyra. Now the Getty has made them, along with the late eighteenth-century etchings of the site by Louis-Fran├žois Cassas, into an online exhibition. This is an excellent idea. Well done.
