Photographs provide a very important visual connection to our ancestors, but our history can fade away without the proper care of these images. In this presentation led by a professional photographic preservationist, the discussion will focus on environmental factors, how they can affect photos, and how to prevent such damage. Glass plates will also be discussed in this well-rounded lecture about photo preservation. Bring a notebook and some old photos of your own to share and ask questions about.
This program will include a behind-the-scenes tour of the Antique Boat Museum’s vast library and archives. Hear an overview of ABM’s digitization project, which has facilitated public access to previously unavailable photographs and holdings.
Presentation will be held in the Education Center at the Antique Boat Museum, 750 Mary Street, Clayton.
