Request for Old Photos from Dubno #photographs #ukraine #poland

Still seeking old photos (1880-1947) from Dubno, Ukraine (formerly Poland, earlier Russian Empire). I am looking for photos of:

1. Single portraits and family groups, 1-20 people (outdoors if possible). Photos showing girls or women preferred (I have already received photos showing men and boys).
2. Non-family groups, such as a class, Zionist group, factory workers, professional group, or just people at work or play. Photos showing girls or women preferred.
3. The Jewish part of town, with Jewish buildings such as synagogues, study houses, marketplace, shops, houses, schools, etc. Old postcards may be used. 
4. Modern photos of the old Jewish area, where some old structures remain. Or a panorama or aerial view of the town.

This book is a volunteer project, so I cannot offer payment, but for any images used, you will receive a prominent image credit. Images must be in good focus, but do not have to be in perfect condition. I may even be able to repair fading, rips, blotches and other problems, making your photo more useful to you. 

If you have old photos, please don’t send them yet. Write to me at artstop@... for instructions on how to scan them in high resolution, or re-photograph them. 

I look forward to hearing from you soon. Many thanks in advance for your kind help!

NOTE: I have already researched, or gotten some good Creative Commons images from, sites like Wikipedia, Virtual Shtetl, Shtetl Routes, USHMM, Yad Vashem, National Museum of Poland, etc.—no need to recommend them.

My name is Nina Schwartz. I am a volunteer graphic designer working with JewishGen on Yizkor books.

Do you have old family photos from when your relatives lived in Dubno (Dubno, Ukraine, formerly in Poland, earlier in the Russian Empire)? The English translation of the Memorial Book of Dubno will soon be ready to print. Photos are needed for the book cover. 

It is difficult to find good 1880-1947 photos online, and JewishGen cannot afford to license them from Getty Images, Alamy, USHMM, etc. 

I am looking for photos that show:
1. The Jewish part of town, with Jewish buildings such as synagogues, study houses, marketplace, shops, houses, schools, etc. Old postcards may be used. 
2. Non-family groups, such as a class, Zionist group, factory workers, professional group, or just people at work or play (outdoors if possible).
3. Single portraits and family groups, 1-20 people (outdoors if possible).
4. Modern photos of the old Jewish area, where some old structures remain, such as synagogues, cemetery headstones, houses or other Jewish buildings. Or a panorama or aerial view of the town.

Images must be in good focus, but do not have to be in perfect condition. I may even be able to repair fading, rips, blotches and other problems, making your photo more useful to you.

If you have old photos, please don’t send them yet. Write to me at artstop@... for instructions on how to scan them in high resolution, or re-photograph them.
