This Just In

Updated: Jul 21

Today, we received a generous donation of 10 glass plate negatives! These beautifully preserved images were first discovered in the donor’s family attic in 1955, and there is reason to believe that the photos are of a local Bayside family. We are in the process of researching and identifying the photographs to determine their provenance.

If anyone is interested in donating similar items, please feel free to contact me at
