We’d like to share some of our best photographic memories with you. We hope this will educate as well as inspire interest in the preservation of photographic memorabilia.
Preserving the past through photography
The Archives & Museum welcomes donations of photographs of historic interest to The Salvation Army. When submitting photographs for our collection provide as much accurate background information as possible.
Record names, where the photo was taken, the date and the occasion on the back of the photograph. Please use a pencil (not a ballpoint pen) as chemicals from the ink will damage the photo.
Take care handling and storing your photos. If you take care of your precious historical memories they will be appreciated by generations to come.
