More Vault programming: in the Guard's Station, across from Theater Two is Guard's Station and inside that will be St Cecilia School and their wonderful Centennial Photo Archive.
St. Cecilia Parish in the Parkside District celebrated its centenary during the 2016-2017 school year. A Centennial Photo Archive was developed to centralize the parish's photos, and create a community-sourced archive for this display, as well as Parish History book and calendar.
Photo collection began one year prior to the Centennial year. In addition to organizing existing photos on-site at the school and Rectory, parish organizers hosted monthly scanning sessions after Mass to crowd-source photos from parishioners, collected photos via email and Dropbox, and developed a custom database of 2,200 images complete with date, event information, and people in the photo. This is a tremendous amount of work: San Francisco History days is pleased to premier the Centennial Archive. This its first public appearance.
