Since the invention of photography the camera has played a pivotal role in capturing and recording our past so later generations can glimpse family life as it happened. I consider any old family photo to be a heritage item, particularly if the photographers records do not otherwise exist.
If preserved and digitised, any of those rare photos/snaps from the family history can leave an indelible mark that will never be forgotten.
Have you documented your photos?
Sometimes the photos have a deeper story than what we see, the full background story can be as intriguing as the actual moment captured in time.
If “a picture’s worth a 1,000 words,” then get them preserved and into a family digital album.
