    Guys,

    The AJ Collection on the Frisco Archive is scans of old printed photos. There are (ballpark) 330 images or so, and I have them all scanned now and ready for presentation on the Archive. They will continue to come every-other-day for well over a year.

    We purchased these. Or, I should say that I purchased some and others were purchased with donations. There was $300 or so involved in it.

    I am trying to decide the disposition of the actual photos as I have no desire to actually keep the original pictures.

    I am wondering what you folks think, or if anyone here would make a reasonable donation to purchase the actual images. There are a few newspaper clippings, advertisements, and other things included that were not scanned.

    If you are interested in acquiring these and helping the Frisco Archive get more content, then let me know please.

    Charlie

    Can you provide a general idea of what these photos are? Color? B&W? More orange and white roster shots, action shots, what? Are they 4x5, 8x10, or something else?

    Well, if you have a shot of caboose 1288 or 1291, I would be interested.

    Mostly 3 X 5. Some bigger, a few smaller. These are the cans: http://frisco.org/mainline/category/aj-collection/

    Negative on that but there might be some left in our slides. I will have to look.

    Let's talk!

    Are all these steam engine photos? And are there any passenger car photos included?

    Most (99%) are steam. Passenger cars, no.
