History Museum Is Digitizing Thousands of Images from Chicago’s Past

The Chicago History Museum is processing about 35,000 nitrate negatives of images taken over the past 200 years. The images will be available online as part of the museum’s collection of more than 1.5 million still images and four million feet of film and video. Museum staff and interns are processing the negs with a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. (via Loop North News)
