We need “old” photos!

We’re working on enlarging our photo collection.

Do you have photos that document “the way things were?”

We would love to scan and archive a copy.  Lend them to us for a few weeks and we’ll scan them, and give them back to you, and share a digital copy with you, if you want one.  We need pictures of buildings, people and events that have taken place in Federal Point from the 1920s to the 1970s.
