New Online Image Catalog
Because of a generous donation from one of our longtime, loyal members, Louise Tallman, and the efforts of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, we have begun a large photo archival project. The project includes the organizing and digitizing of a large collection of photographs taken by turn-of-the-twentieth century Rye photographers A.R.H. Foss and Clarence Trefrey, as well as many other Rye images. The online catalog is searchable and photographs available for re-printing (which make great gifts!).
Currently we have over 100 images online, but are adding more weekly, so please check back often to see what we've added!
