One of our mantras is "from the shelf to the public" and our recently completed digitization project of glass plate negatives in the Thomas Warren Sears collection of Smithsonian Gardens is a wonderful example of that. Shown here is just one of 3,284 plates that were digitized, with some examples of our "before" and "after" online versions. There is so much detail to explore in these beautiful plates, we invite you to take a look at the collections.si.edu site (search on "Thomas Warren Sears Archives of American Gardens").
