Welcome to Springfield Rewind. With the help of the Sangamon Valley Collection at Lincoln Library, we are looking at the ways Springfield has changed over the years. If you have photos of Springfield Past that you would like to share, or ideas for what you would like to see – email them to me and I’ll add them to the collection.

How does this work?

Springfield Rewind uses very large image files, which may take several seconds to load if you don’t have a high speed internet connection. When the main photo on the page is loaded, move your mouse pointer over the photo and hold it there. This will cause the updated photo to load and it will be displayed until you move the mouse pointer away from the image. You can then switch back and forth by moving the pointer over the image.
