Heritage Project

Under the guidance of Peter Marshall, Petersfield Arts Society has started an exciting project at Petersfield Museum.

Don Eades, a freelance photographer has donated over 100,000 photographic negatives to the museum, which he took over a period of 25 years (1962 to 1987). Many of these were published in our local newspaper, The Petersfield Post. Stored in envelopes by week/year with a brief description of the contents, they are currently being sorted, initially by historical importance. Negatives of interest will be scanned into the museum’s database and will incorporate a system for searching and identifying those of import. Scanned images (around 30,000) will then be available to see in a positive format at the museum.
