Thanks to a grant from the Norwich Women’s Club, we have hired Kevin Hybels to begin digitizing our photograph collection. Kevin is a Norwich resident and a history major at Cornell University.

We are beginning by scanning our collection of Norwich road photos. Kevin is scanning the photographs, street by street.

He will be sharing favorite photos and insights into Norwich History on Facebook and our website in a series of posts titled Street Smarts.

Next winter, his work will form the foundation for a new exhibit: Street Smarts: The stories of how Norwich roads got their names.

April Andrews generously lent us her scanner and her time, advising us on software and scanning techniques. Thank you, April!
