The West Florida Photohistory database contains thousands of photographs of the Bell Collection. Henry Bell operated a photograph studio in Pensacola 1911-1949, and these images are of Pensacola individuals, families, weddings, theatre actors, visitors to the area, politicians, and others. The West Florida Photohistory Project is part of the PALMM (Publication of Archives, Libraries, and Museum Materials), a cooperative project of Florida's state universities.

PALMM (Publication of Archives, Libraries, and Museum Materials) is a cooperative web portal among Florida's eleven state university libraries, as a means of digitizing rare Floridiana-related materials and making them available. As materials are added or contributed, they are placed in collection groupings (e.g. Maps, Legal Materials, etc.), however using the search box at the top of the portal permits one to search all materials regardless of their type.
