The photographs in the collection date from the late 1800s and are an important part of the archives holdings that record the social history of Bayfield. The archives also has several aerial photographs of Bayfield beginning in 1948. The village's 1976 centennial year of incorporation marked the occasion to commemorate the village's history with another aerial photograph. This photograph was published as the back flyleaf in the book, Corporation of the Village of Bayfield, 1976-1985.

The history of many residential and commercial buildings in Bayfield are documented in photographs. A cross-section of some of these buildings have been included in this section.
