The Coronado Historical Association has over 22,000 historic photographs in the collection. Most of the photos are well documented, but some have remained mysteries. Participants of the workshop will view a presentation of select photographs from the collection that have stumped CHA historians. The pictures will be historic photos of places, events, and people that are unidentified and have remained historical mysteries. As we go through the photos, catalogers will be on hand to capture information that participants remember or can identify about each photo. This will contribute to accurate documentation of the collection so future researchers can benefit. This workshop, led by CHA staff member Vickie Stone, will be a time to relax, have fun looking at photographs, and reminisce about old Coronado!
