Historians, rejoice! The Sherman Library & Gardens just uploaded at least 4,000 of its archived photos that detail the history of Southern California since the late 19th century.
That 4,000 is just a fraction of the estimated 40,000 photos in the Newport Beach library’s archives, still to be uploaded in the coming months as part of an ongoing project to digitize its materials for public accessibility. Paul Wormser, director of the library, said the project’s been a long time coming, but that the coronavirus pandemic allowed for the library to push forward with its online initiatives.
