Sharing Photos & Documents

See our [[Photo Gallery in Picasa]]

Add your photos to our photo library:

  • A few photos you'd like to share? E-mail them to [[picasa e-mail address]]. They'll need to be in JPEG (.jpg) format. You can send as many as you like.
  • Lots of photos or another format? [[Contact us]] and and we'll figure out the easiest way together. Ttry to explain how many photos you have, what format (PSD, JPG, TIFF?), and average file size (or if they're high or low-resolution).
  • Want to embed a photo on a page on this site (not just in the Gallery)? Just click "Edit" at upper right, and then in the top left menu select "Insert > Image"


if your information is appropriate for a public encyclopedia, then it may be better to add it to Wikipedia's page on Fred Harvey Company History or the section on Noteworthy Fred Harvey Hotels & Restuarants. However, if you are confused by Wikipedia, or the information doesn't belong there, we encourage you to store it on this site:

  • Company History
    • Hotels & Restaurants: History & Current Renovations

  • Family History
    • Family TreeA hierarchical view of Fred Harvey's Descendants.
