Can you believe we've already raised $1,080 for the preservation of our photographic collections? Our original goal was $600, but with your donations we surpassed that...and then some! Thank you so much for contributing to such a worthy cause. You really are saving a piece of Atlanta's history, one donation at a time.
Before we go any further, we should probably introduce ourselves. We are Michelle Asci (Photo Specialist) and Hilary Morrish (Archival Processing & Exhibits) the exhibit team behind "A Race Against Time: Saving Atlanta's Photographic History." Here's a few photos of us looking through the Ernest Welch collection. After a little bit of digging we found these great slides that would be perfect for the physical and digital exhibit.
Watch out for another post soon. We'll be sharing about Ernest Welch, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and all of the unique artifacts we find along the way.
Until next week!
