Bring your old photos to our Scanfest!
This year’s theme for History Week (7-15 September) is, “Picture this….”
In keeping with this pictorial theme, all the museums of the lower Clarence Valley will be running a Scanfest.
Students, teachers and the general public are invited to visit their nearest local museum on Tuesday 10 September with historical photos of this region. These will then be scanned, (at no charge) and they can take away a digital copy (please bring your own storage device). The original photo can be taken home, or donated to the museum. Digital copies of all the scanned photos will then be distributed to a relevant local museum, depending on the topic of each photo, thereby adding to our local history records.
This photo for example, shows people enjoying the Tim the Bream angling competition; an event that used to happen at the local swimming pool that has since been filled in to create the carpark area at Turners Beach, Yamba.
The following Clarence Valley Museums, including the Yamba Museum of course, are looking forward to seeing your old photos!
