Great news! Over the past 2 days we've had an unprecedented number of new visitors to the site. Over 750!
The vast majority of these visitors have been finding us through a Facebook shout out we got from Dirty Old Boston, on the WHDH footage about the Blinstrub's nightclub fire in 1968. Check out the footage yourself. It's a great piece on a tragic event that is remembered by many in our local Boston community.
There are many of these gems in our collections. And a lot of them haven't been digitized yet. If you search our non-video assets, and come across a story you think you remember or you' be interested in seeing streaming online, let us know! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll work as hard as we can to get you and the general public access to that footage.
