Here the AA. demonstrate how historical photographs (1868, 1895, 1907, 1936) in Ethiopia are used in studies on landscape and land use changes, soil erosion and geomorphology, history and historical context, livelihood and archaeology. Further, using the case study of Ethiopia, the location, accessibility and quality of digital archives of historical photographs is discussed as well as the way in which they can be used in research (comparison with actual photographs). Historical landscape photographs that are available in major archives may now largely be traced and often obtained through the Internet, as libraries increasingly are digitising collections and making them available online
