CARLSON PHOTOGRAPHY NEGATIVE PROJECT
Several years ago, the Carlson Photography Studio (formerly known as Stadin Photography) in Cambridge donated most of its negatives to the historical society. One dedicated volunteer worked for 15 months cataloging these negatives. We were just about to scan the negatives when our building was destroyed by an arsonist.
Many of the negatives were fused and burnt. Of those that were saved, all the ID numbers were on the edge and have been burnt off leaving us with no way to identify the people in the photos.
"This is a huge loss for our history as I am sure there were many 'hidden treasures' among these negatives," said ICHS Executive Director Kathy McCully. "My goal was to create several books of the most memorable, or a line of greeting cards to support our operating budget."
Can you help us identify these people?
