Just One Word: Plastics!

During the social media movement to Save the Georgia Archives from closing, this delightful photo was shared with the Facebook group as an example of the unique holdings of the Georgia Archives.  I’ve always been fascinated with William Barrow and his fantastic lamination machines, and thought it would be fun to share this here.

This vintage photo of an archivist at work is from Record Group 64, which holds the historic photographs of National Archives staff.

So what is this woman doing? She’s showing off the cellulose acetate used for the lamination of documents, of course.
