Title: Big Bend area photographic collection, 1887-2003
Quantity: 300 photographs
This collection consists of approximately 300 photographs donated to the State Archives of Florida, primarily by residents of Florida's Big Bend region, in conjunction with a Scan Day held at the Archives in October 2013. The images document scenes of people, places, and events from across the state of Florida in the 19th and 20th centuries. Most of the images are digital scans of the original prints brought by the public to Scan Day; only a few original prints were also donated to the Archives.
On October 12, 2013, the State Archives of Florida held a Scan Day event in conjunction with American Archives Month. The public was encouraged to bring in their family photographs for scanning and possible inclusion in the State Archives' photographic collection. A selection of these photographs was added to the Florida Memory website.
