Kim Cumber, our Non-Textual Materials Archivist, continues to add photographs to our Flickr account. I am going to start periodically posting photos that catch my eye as she adds them; hopefully that will help our patrons (and anyone else who happens to read this blog) get a feel for the variety of materials available through the State Archives and, in particular, the Non-Textual Materials Unit.
Plus it’s just fun to look at these photos. I actually had such a hard time picking just one image to post today that I’m going to post a few. Hopefully you’ll enjoy them as much as I do.
