The opportunity is back!  We’re SUPER EXCITED, because Picnooga has the unique opportunity to acquire quite a few rare and unpublished glass plate negatives of daily life in Chattanooga during the early 1900s. We’ve already purchased a little more than 110 negatives, and are partially funded for another 120+.

You can adopt a glass plate negative for a donation of $15 each. Or, give $25 for two.

When you adopt a negative, we’ll send you a high quality scan of YOUR image (please let us select) and its history via email. You’ll also get an exclusive look at all of the images before we publish them to the public.  Please help us save these invaluable pieces of Chattanooga History.  The extended deadline is January the 28th, 2016.  Thank you.

We are totally funded!  Thanks again for your ongoing support.

* Because preservation is important, especially with glass plates, the original negatives will be donated to a local library or institution to be stored under archival best practices.

** Email, with questions.
