Online Free Photo Archive Creates Mosaic of Collective Memory-Romania #romania

A free online photo archive with pictures donated by the public is restoring Romania’s collective memory.  Azopan is the free online archive which digitizes and publishes analogue photographs donated by the public.


Go to https://www.azopan.ro/ to see the photos. There is a banner beneath the Azopan name . Click on the year you wish to view. It starts in 1900 and has an archive every five years through 1990.  One can view photographs from World War l as well as World War ll.

 

Azopan hopes more people will submit photos that they can scan and publish, making this archive grow so that it becomes even more representative of Romania’s pre-digital memory.

Hi Jan,
Looks like a valuable site, but seems to default to ”selected year”  when any search attempt is made, and I can’t see a way to remove this restriction. The check mark beside it does not uncheck. Other than searching for the same term in 5 year increments which is very time consuming, any other suggestions?
Many thanks, Janyce

Jan Lastman asks about how to move the line for the various years as she  said "seems to default to ”selected year”  when any search attempt is made, and I can’t see a way to remove this restriction." .I have had no problem clicking on any of the years and the photos for that year appear. It may be time consuming but that is the only way I see to do it if your search does not work.
