Newport Snap Project

In 2005 Newport History Society reorganised their photographic archives. We did not want them to be permanently in a store. We wanted the public to view them and help us identify people and places.

As a result of a Local Heritage Initiative lottery grant in the same year, we embarked on a three-year project to digitise in all our archive photos and slides. We also – and still do- digitise other people's local photos. They are all now accessible to the public on this website.
