The Portland Press Herald Still-Film Negative Collection consists of 70 years (ca.1936 - 2005) of primary photographic images, in approximately 325 linear feet. The collection is made up entirely of negatives; there are no prints. Formats include 5x7", 4x5", 120, and 35mm still film, all taken by Portland Press Herald photographers. The collection was accessioned by the Portland Public Library, as a gift from the Portland Press Herald, in December 2009, and is currently in the process of being arranged, described, indexed, and conserved. The depth of substance within this collection provides an extraordinary spectrum of real-time documentation of the many-faceted life of the city of Portland through the 20th century.
