As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. And in an archive full of documents, photographs visually connect the words to people and places. Join Dan Bullman, the Mary Baker Eddy Library’s Photo Archivist, as he talks about the significance of photography and the Library’s photo collections. He also touches on the history of photography and the preservation of historic photos in digital formats.
