Our story starts in the City Archives, where the collections present challenges…
The first of which was ORGANIZATION . With images stored in boxes based on the city unit they represented (Streets, Schools, etc.), finding any particular image was a significant challenge.
The second was PRESERVATION . The oldest negatives are combustible, and newer ones are prone to warping.
The third was ACCESS . To access an image, a visitor would have to go to the archives and have a valid research reason for entrance. Approximately 100 people per year did this.
