Do you have historical photos of South Whidbey?
The South Whidbey Historical Society, in partnership with Washington Rural Heritage and Sno-Isle Libraries, is working on a project to scan and digitize historic photos of South Whidbey to be included on the Washington Rural Heritage website at www.washingtonruralheritage.com/.
Washington Rural Heritage is a collaborative digitization project coordinated by the Washington State Library bringing together local history resources from heritage organizations and private collections throughout the state.
Becky Bolte, Sno-Isle district manager, said the South Whidbey project coincides with “Preservation Week” April 21-27.
“You can help celebrate by contributing your family’s photographs for digital preservation,” Bolte said.
All photos will be returned after scanning. If you have pre-1940s photos of identified South Whidbey buildings, locations, people or events, submit them to Bob Waterman (360-221-8644) or Bill Haroldson (360-341-6090) for review.
The deadline for submissions is April 30. For more information about the project visit www.sno-isle.org/?ID=6548.
