The first week of April is Archives Awareness Week in Ontario! With that in mind, here is a behind the scenes peak into the archives of the Sisters of Providence of St. Vincent de Paul. All the photographs used for the Throwback Thursday posts on Facebook and Twitter and all the photos used in the Providence Flashbacks are housed in the Archives. Here is a behind the scenes look at how and where archival photographs are stored. We keep the photographs in acid free folders in archival boxes on stainless steel shelves.
