Preserve Your Photographs!

Delhi Historical Society's collections priority over the last few years has been to properly organize and preserve the Delhi Township photo collection. Photos are our most requested object from the public so we want to make sure we have them easily accessible and protected for our researchers and volunteers. We hope you made it out to our January 8th lecture, but if you could not, we are happy to share some resources and our slides with you. Enjoy!

Video by the Smithsonian Institution shows how to safely remove photos from those pesky magnetic albums!

This is a great ad for Stabilo pencils showing the dos and don'ts when writing on photographs!
