Blast from the Search Room’s Past

Kim Cumber, our Non-Textual Materials Archivist, recently sent me this image of the Archives and History Search Room ca. 1940s.

Some of you who have visited the State Archives recently may notice that the 1940s Search Room looks similar, in some respects, to the temporary location of the current Search Room. However, during the time this photograph was taken the Search Room was located in the Old Education Building on the corner of Salisbury and Edenton Streets.
