Calling all Photo Hobbyists; Help Preserve Your Communities History

Through the Photo Preservation Center, we often hear about issues of preserving an individual family's photo memories, but there is a larger picture - if you will - to consider. If your town or community has a historical society, often their archives are all analog, including decades of photographs that are beginning to fade away.

For photo hobbyists, consider pooling your resources with other civic leaders to digitally archive your town's history. The Photo Preservation Center can assist with directing you to local photo retailers that can help digitally archive your collections of photos, film and slides and make photo enlargements and other newly printed keepsakes.
