Digitized Pompeian photos at Strasbourg University

A site with ancient pictures of Pompeii casually encountered.
The University of Strasbourg bought the collection of pictures gathered by Adolf Michaelis (1835-1910, first director of the Institute of Classical Archaeology [Kunstarchäologisches Institut]) when he died.
Among many others, some 117 pictures of Pompeii have been recently digitized.

More general info there (in French).
