PPP Workshop on Preservation Dos and Don’ts at Downtown Home and Garden, Saturday

April 15, 2013

PPPWorkshopFlyer_DHG_PDFSpring is a great time to visit downtown Ann Arbor. And next week, we at Priceless Photo Preservation are providing an extra reason to go downtown to enjoy all of its wonderful shops, restaurants and entertainment options.

 

From 9-11 a.m., the professional archivists at Priceless Photo Preservation will be holding one of our occasional workshops aimed at educating people about how to best preserve their most precious family mementos: Photos, scrapbooks, slides, home videos and movies.

 

The workshop, titled “Top Ten Preservation Mistakes… and How to Avoid Them,” will take place at Downtown Home and Garden, 210 South Ashley – a little more than a block away from PPP’s new office at 122 South Main St.. Suite 110C.

 

 

The workshop is free and is designed to be interactive. Feel free to bring some of the family materials you have questions about – and we will do everything we can to answer questions about them, such as how to best preserve them, make them more available to other family members or enhance their value as key pieces of family history.

 

 

We will also have a TV showing the 1939 color movie of downtown Ann Arbor that we preserved and digitized last year for Larry Goetz of Goetzcraft Printers. Titled “We’re In the Movies,” the 70-minute 16mm silent film includes a rare look at the way Ann Arbor used to be more than 70 years ago.

 

The day will also feature tours by Downtown Home and Garden Mark Hodesh of his historic building, which was built more than a century ago.

 

 

All of the events are free and no pre-registration is required. We hope to see you there!
