The quality of newspaper images in this website varies. Some were taken by a professional photographer who volunteered with the project, while others were taken by community members using their own cameras or iphones. Further, some of the old microfilms are extremely fuzzy. Please remember that this is a grass-roots initiative with diverse contributors.
