This year for the annual Society of Ohio Archivists’ October Archives Month poster we asked for archival images having to do with the theme of Transportation in Ohio.
The Advocacy and Outreach Committee is happy to announce the top ten photographs selected by you (SOA membership)! These ten photos are in the running to be included in the final poster. Stay tuned for this year’s poster as we get closer to October and Archives Month. Posters will be mailed to members by the end of September.
Thank you to all that submitted! We could not do this without people / institutions who submit such interesting photographs.
Congrats to the University of Akron Archives and Special Collections and to Dayton History for their images being in the top 3.
