Historic Photo Collection

Thank you for your continued support for this project!

In April 2016, I purchased an estimated 50,000 negatives taken by a now-defunct photo studio and a weekly newspaper in Shamokin. Many of the negatives show the Shamokin, Mount Carmel and Elysburg area in the 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s. 
I scan, edit, upload and caption at least 400 negatives a month. Since April 2016, I have posted 10,000 vinatge photos to my site, www.daladophotography.com. I do not get paid for my work, so your continued support has been much appreciated! My goal is find a negative that relates to you. 

Let's keep the old times rolling!!

Thanks!

Hello everyone. I want to thank you for all the donations -- big and small -- that have helped offset the time and cost to carry out this project. Since April 2016, I have scanned more than 10,000 negatives. I try to scan, edit, upload and caption 400 a month. My goal is to find a photo that relates to you. I do not get paid to scan these negatives, so your continued support means the world!!!

I found two photos. One of a large group of family members celebrating one relatives birthday with a caption unknown gathering or something like that - i hope the caption was updated with my info! I also found another photo by accident - it was my Dad's cousin killed in WWII. I had heard his name many times, and i happened to just scroll through a large page of soldier photos and his was the first i saw.. I know that was FATE because i had been at his gravesite a few months earlier. I had no idea what he looked like - never had seen any photos of him. A hero!! So grateful for your efforts. Thank you!!

I grew up in the coal region. This is a really fascinating piece of history that should be preserved. Thanks for all your hard work and for putting it online for people to enjoy.
