The Lee Library is seeking help identifying the people, places and whatever else can be identified in these photos taken after the March 1968 flood.   We have copies of all the photos at the circulation desk.   If you, or someone you know, can help identify these photos, please write any information on the back of the photo, or on the attached data sheet.   Thank you.

The visual record of the town and its evolution is found in our photo collection. Photos document all aspects of life--education, religion, disasters, individuals, sports, leisure activities, buildings, and businesses (especially the papermaking and marble industries).

The collection is now online in the Digital Commonwealth repository. You may view it by following this link.

Monday, 10/22, Photography @the Library, AKA Mondays with Thad Kubis. The Lee Library's Photography Special Interest Group. What photography questions would you ask?

For example: Sunsets. Why are my photos of a sunset not as beautiful as the sunset? In one word, your images are overexposed due to the design of the reflective in-camera meter system, UNDEREXPOSE your sunset photos, (1/3 of underexposure at a time) take notes and you will start to see the difference.

This is an opportunity to ask your questions one-on-one, get answers and learn from one another.
