going to happen to Grampa's picture album when he is gone?
Who has any interest in pictures of people and places that they
don't know anything about? Aside from family pictures, where is
the interest in hanging on to old photographs that bring no memories
or make no connections to the past?
many times in making enquiries about the possibility of photographs
of an old soldier we learn that no one knows what happened to
them. They went somewhere to be tucked away - and were forgotten
and eventually thrown away. Old treasures becoming useless junk
because there is no longer any personal connection. It happens
more often than most people realize.
photographs are an invaluable records of past events, changing
landscapes, evolving communities and technologies. To historians
and archivists old forgotten photos can be goldmines - if they
have been properly preserved and identified. Even those that are
damaged or faded with time can be repaired and revived through
the new techniques of digital imagery.
you have no further use for Grandfather's old photos you should
consider donating them to a museum, or to a national, provincial
or community archive.
you care at all about what will happen to your memory treasure-chest,
and want to protect them for prosperity, there are secure repositories
where they would be most welcomed, and where they would be available
to future generations.
you have photos relating to the Royal Canadian Signal Corps, and
in particular the NWT&Y Radio System, please get in touch

Museum in Kingston, or here at the History Project. We would be
