Photos and Memories

"Memories Road Show. The event, which has now been held in eight South Shore communities, makes digital records of individual photos and videos of stories to be preserved in the Open Archives at UMass-Boston.  The instructions had said, “Bring no more than three photos,” and Bangs had chosen carefully: his parents, two older brothers and himself at his aunt’s 1964 wedding; a 1974 Marshfield High School “powder puff” football game in which the boys were cheerleaders and the girls played the game; and a 1960s childhood scene from Camp Daniel Webster."  Full story here.
This is a great idea for a community.  Bring along photos and tell the stories with an audio recorder.  The photos are scanned and the stories are with them.
