The winter meeting of the Allen County Historical Society will focus on the museum’s new photo scanner.

The scanner can process negatives as large as 8-by-10 inches.

With more than 40 boxes filled with negative images, some dating back to the early years of the 20th century, the Historical Society’s plan is to digitize them all.
