Archive does exist. When you update pictures and save they do not show up on the main pictures display. You have to double click the picture window and select "Archive" to get at the new pictures. This is counter intuitive and doesn't work the way Zillow describes their picture update process. If you edit pictures and save the edits, they should show up immediately on the picture display as Zillow describes in their instructions.

What "archive"?  I'm not sure that any such thing exists.

It used to be that none of the photos were ever "deleted", but if one destroyed the reference to the URL, there was no way to look them up.  Last summer Zillow implemented an image garbage collection routine, that would actually delete the images if they were not referenced.

The only way I know to access images on Zillow when the references are deleted is to have saved the URL, such as in a browser history.  Then one could find the URL, find the image, and save the image back to one's hard drive.  And then could reload the image.

Of course, if they came from a syndicated "auto feed", one could just get it from that website, or wait until the site is polled again.

Are we talking about the "Victorian" row house on a "double lot"?
(personally, I don't consider homes without bay windows for both the dining room and living room "Victorian").
