Sacramento Room's New Digital Collection

When I heard about the Digital Collection project at the downtown Sacramento Pubic Library from the great folks in the Sacramento Room, I was really excited. And boy, did they deliver!

The new collection "features digital images of photographs, menus, postcards and other items from the Sacramento Public Library’s Special Collections."

This project was indeed a labor of love; per their site: "over 3,000 photographs, postcards and menus form the original Sacramento Digital Collections which – from beginning to end – took over a year to compile, scan, and describe. The project mission is to provide an image-based window into the social, political and economic history of the Greater Sacramento area, from the 1840s to the present-day."

The images are a real portal to the past -- enjoy!
