Collector Robin Stanford sold more than 500 images to the Library of Congress for an undisclosed amount, the Washington Post reports. "They’re just tremendously significant," said Bob Zeller, president of the Center for Civil War Photography. "These are not post-war. These are actual scenes of slavery in America."

Stanford, 87 and of Houston, had been collecting the images—many of them are stereo pictures, or two of the same frame that are printed on one card and meant to be seen in 3-D via a stereo viewer—since the 1970s.
