HISTORIC PHOTOGRAPHS IN THE BETHEL WOODS COLLECTION

Historic photos in the Bethel Woods Collection are primarily snapshots of the 1969 Woodstock festival and surrounding communities taken by attendees during or after the festival. The photos are organized by their donor or source. Users of the Online Archive can search for photos by keyword or browse by collection.

Downloading Images
Photos are downloadable in three sizes: 5 megapixel, 3 megapixel, and 1 megapixel. Photo prices are fixed according to these sizes.

Price includes a license to use the downloaded image for personal, nonprofit, or tourism media use. Please read and agree to the Conditions of Use (under the FAQs menu) before downloading or ordering images.

Licenses for commercial use of Online Archive images—for publication, broadcast, advertising, web, or public display—are charged according to the type of user and the expected use. Contact us at [email protected] for commercial licensing information.

Update: Photos in the Bethel Woods Collection were scanned to preserve the original content as faithfully as possible. While some have been adjusted to correct from over- or under-exposure of the original, the scans were generally left unretouched, leaving the dust, scratches, and damage of the originals. We are now in the process of retouching and color-correcting the images and will post the corrected images as they are available.

Note: Watermarks visible in the Online Archive images will not be visible in downloaded images.
