The “Images” series consists of five subseries: “Prints,” “Slides,” “Negatives,” “Contact Sheets,” and “Framed Items.” Within the “Prints” subseries, there are four sub-subseries: “People,” “Events,” “Departments,” and “Buildings.” Within these groups, there are several focal points of coverage. These include black and white shots of patients from the 1930’s to 1940’s and the 1960’s to the 1980’s. Most of these patient portraits were used for public relations purposes. Within the “Events” sub-subseries, the bulk are from the 1980’s. These photographs capture the children of the Seashore House enjoying such events as banquets, parties, and trips. Also included are visits from notable athletes, celebrities, and politicians, such as Eric Lindros, Willie Mays, Tug McGraw, Ed Rendell, and Mike Tyson. Within the “Buildings” sub-subseries, there is extensive coverage of the late 1980’s construction of the new Children’s Seashore House facility located on the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s campus at 34th Street and Civic Center Boulevard. The “Prints” subseries is organized chronologically.

Within the “Slides,” “Negatives,” and “Contact Sheets,” there are duplicate copies from the “Prints” subseries, as well as unique images. Where information is available, these have been arranged chronologically. The last subseries, "Framed Items," consists of one oil painting of William H. Bennett, M.D., who became physician-in-charge in 1874, and molded the medical standards, ethics, and policies of the Seashore House. Also in this subseries is a series of commemorative event and donor plaques.
