WANTED: Historical Sacramento Photos...

The Sacramento Archives and Museum Collection Center is attempting to compile and archive as many photos of Sacramento's daily life as possible - past and present day. The center is trying to collect a vast Sacramento-county wide historical photo collection. Its "Faces & Places of Sacramento" project will document the daily lives and historical, political and cultural life of the greater Sacramento locale.

There are several "collection events" coming up in the area. At each collection event, photographers will be on hand to "copy" the snapshots. The center will archives the copies to disk, and the "donors" keep their original photos.

Photo collection events are held by each City Council district. The next event is in District 2 (North Sacramento) from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Nov. 17 at the Joe Mims Jr.- Hagginwood Community Center (3271 Marysville Blvd). Appointments for the event may be scheduled by calling (916) 264-7073.
