The Mass. Memories Road Show is collecting photos and stories of the BOSTON HARBOR ISLANDS!
Folks with photos relating to the Boston Harbor Islands are invited to
become a part of Massachusetts history by sharing their photos and stories with
a state-wide archive of local history at UMass Boston!
Want to participate?
Take some time to go through your family photo albums and scrapbooks and pick out two or three photographs that are of people, places or events relating to the Boston Harbor Islands. They can be old or new; formal or snapshots; color or black-and-white. They can be photos of you, your children or your ancestors. They can be photos of events, excursions or everyday activities. (Original, unframed photos are best; as are photos in which you can identify the people pictured.)
Bring your photos to the Massachusetts Archives (Columbia Point, Dorchester) on Saturday, September 17 from 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. We will scan the photos and immediately return them to you. You will be invited to share a 3-4 minute story about your photographs on camera and take a “keepsake photo” to document your participation in the event. All photos and stories scanned at the event will become part of the UMass Boston digital archive, online at www.MassMemories.net.
This is the Mass. Memories Road Show's only event to digitize photos of the Boston Harbor Islands, so come out and make sure your photos and stories are included.
The event is free and open to all. Get a free ticket (via this website) or drop in anytime during the event.
