You are all by now probably familiar with the Digital Commonwealth repository where our digitized historical photos and postcards currently live. Other historical material has been digitized, and we continue to add to this online historical trove. A list of all our digitized items can be found here: https://www.robbinslibrary.org/local-history-room/
If this is all new to you, here’s a tiny sampling of Robbins’ digitized collection of historic photos and postcards. These images were chosen for no apparent reason other than to spring us out of a winter mindset and fast forward to Summer or maybe even Spring.
If you are interested in leaving comments or descriptive text or even captions on any of the images feel free to do so. These will be captured for possibly adding to the collections’ metadata at some point in the future.
Your input is appreciated and can be left at the end of this posting.
