Historical Photo Scan-a-thon with Halifax Municipal Archives: Preserve & Share Images of Your Neighbourhood

12:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Central Library

Description

Halifax Municipal Archives invites you to help them preserve our local history. If you have old photographs, slides or negatives showing what your neighbourhood used to look like, bring them to this drop-in scan-a-thon. 

Archivists will record everything you know about the images, then carefully scan them so you and future researchers will have a digital copy to share. Contributors can either donate the original photograph and keep a digital copy, or can donate the digital copy to the Archives and take the original back home with them. 

We will also provide some advice and supplies to help best preserve records at home. Bring just a few photos for this trial scan-a-thon - we can make arrangements if you have a treasure trove to share. Drop in anytime!

If you have questions about this event, please contact archives@halifax.ca or phone (902) 490-4643.
