Medford Historical Society Civil War Photographs

The Medford Historical Society in Medford, Massachusetts has a unique collection of 5,400 original images prepared primarily in the expensive platinum method which produced photographs of extraordinary clarity and detail. Unfortunately, the Society has not had the means to ensure that this collection is properly preserved and made available to the public. We have been working with the Society’s officials to ensure the scanned photographs are available to the public as soon as possible. Since their collection is one of the greatest finds of our generation and will increase our understanding of the life and times of this period, BGES will be providing the software, equipment and technical expertise to make these photographs available.
