Ken Finishes Another Project
Two weeks ago, Volunteer Ken finished the Norton Peel color negatives and has started to scan the removed for preservation originals.
The Norton & Peel images are 350 uncataloged 8 x 10 images from the early 1960's and will be added to collections online this summer after cataloging is completed. This work started in November 2016 and ended March 28th, 2017.
The preservation originals are rare and fragile images created during and around the end of 1890's through 1910 in Minnesota's early statehood history.
