Inventory, digitisation and research of the Francisco Salinas postcard collection (EAP1476)

Aims and objectives

The project proposes to digitise a universe of 8,885 Chilean postcards which date approximately from 1876 to 1945 and make them digitally available to the museums audiences through the, the museum’s online photography repository. The postcards depict different places in Chile, from Arica to Magallanes, in addition to other very significant ones such as native peoples, centenary of Chile, monuments, landmarks and others. The project will have the help of a group of professionals who will carry out the tasks of preventive conservation, inventory, documentation and digitisation.
