Society wants to scan old photos
By Robyn Gray
The Brunswick Valley Historical Society wants to add to its photographic collection by scannning loaned pictures.
A Work for the Dole project being conducted at the museum in Mullumbimby has broadened the skill base as well as the number of members in the society now able to undertake the scanning process.
Secretary of the society Robyn Gray said many people had albums full of interesting historical pictures, but they were reluctant to give them away.
"The scanning process allows us to take a good copy without people having to part with their treasures," she said.
The process takes only a couple of minutes and can be done while people wait.
Information about the photographs including dates and names will be recorded at the same time.
Anyone with pictures to contribute is asked to make an appointment with project supervisor Sarah Newsome on 6684 4867.
