Larry Deklinski  COAL TOWNSHIP, PA
I am asking for your help to offset the contiued care and supplies to bring online more than 50,000 negatives from a defunct photo studio that documented Northumberland County, Pa., and the surrounding area for more than 100 years. The studio's work included photos taken for high school yearbooks  for more than 20 years.

I have already scanned, edited, captioned and organized more than 2,500 negatives in 8 months time to my site, www.daladophotography.com , even though I have two jobs. The profit from photo sales does not come close to the cost of supplies I have purchased, such as a $800 scanner, and the countless nights I have -- and continue -- to spend getting these photos out of the dust and onto  the web for all to see. 

A little background: In April 2016 I purchased several thousand dollars worth of the Thomas negatives from a county historical society. The negatives have come home!!

Thanks for your support, even if you just share the link!!
