The Mass Memories Road Show, a statewide community history project operated by UMass Boston set up shop in Lowell today at the Tsongas Industrial History Center within the Boott Cotton Mills Museum. More than 100 Lowell residents brought vintage and current photographs to be scanned, archived, and made available on the web as part of this project. Lowell was the 50th community that’s been visited by Mass Memories, so there are just 301 more to go. In the photo above, John Quealey chats with a team of scanner operators and in the photo below, one of the Lowell participants tells the story of her photograph on video. Both the photos and the videos of the stories by contributors will be available on the Mass Memories website within a week or two. As soon as they are, we’ll do another post about it.
