Express & Star Seeks To Digitise Photo Archive
The UK's highest-selling regional evening newspaper has launched a bid to digitise its archive of deteriorating photographs dating back more than a century. Wolverhampton's Express & Star has called on readers to write letters of support to help secure Heritage Lottery funding for the three-year project. The estimated 750,000 photographs are currently filed in a dark room. The task of digitisation will involve individually scanning the original photographs along with their corresponding captions.
