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, and we'll work as hard as we can to get you and the general public access to that footage.
