Appraisal And Identification Of Photographs

The Society is interested in acquiring copies of images of value pertaining to the history of the Gatineau Valley. However, donors and lenders should be aware of some important qualifications.

Unidentified photographs (with no information as to their contents) usually have very little value or interest. In a nutshell, people offering us photographs to copy will be asked to provide as much information about them as possible, responding to five "W" questions: WHO are the people in each photograph? WHERE and WHEN was the picture taken? WHAT are the events that were taking place? WHY was the photo taken?
