Denmark Photo & Video, LLC | Searchable Photo Data Base, Raleigh, NC, 1917-1956
I own a Photography Studio is Raleigh and 'inherited' approx. 50,000 negatives from my Grandfathers studio that operated in Raleigh from 1917-1956. He was located on Fayetteville St. in the old Hudson Belk building, and was one of two premier portrait photographers in Raleigh during that era. The negatives are mostly of people in the Raleigh area, but many are of people from people of surrounding areas. We also have many of other topics ranging from WWI photographs, downtown Raleigh shots, NCSU when it was AMC College, and my favorite ones are from a beach trip to the coast for a week-end. The ones I have scanned can be seen on my web site at www.denmarkphoto.com and going to the Photo Store on the upper right side. Once there, there are categories that separate the collections.I have been scanning the negatives for a year, and wanted to have at least 5000 on the site before we let the word out so that we would have a good data base to pull from. They are all marked with names and are search able on my web site by the persons (or place) name. We offer them to people by doing the search on the web site, and then they can download the file straight to their computer by using a credit card. From there, they can print them and or share them with family members. Some of them need art work, and we offer the art services as well.This is a great story about how they were given away and stored in a warehouse in 1956 (for 50 years) when my grandfather died. Then they were given back to me about two years ago by the gentleman who stored them as he was clearing his warehouse out.
