A Madison family's penchant for photography captured candid views of family life, their love for a menagerie of pets, parades and other festivities on the Capitol Square, university life and a number of Madison landmarks — all from the late 19th through the early 20th century. Now nearly 200 of those photographs taken by William and Clara Middleton and their son Forest are available online and constitute another in a series of photographic galleries within the Wisconsin Historical Society's Wisconsin Historical Images collection.
