Do you have old photographs or vintage postcards of East Cobb County? Are you knowledgeable about your local history? Would you like to help preserve your community’s fascinating history?
WANTED… folks to share and pass on memories and knowledge related to East Cobb, its people, places, things and surrounding area. If you live, have lived or have ties to the East Cobb County area, your stories and/or photographs from yesteryear are wanted.
Cynthia Rozzo, founder and publisher of the EAST COBBER, is currently compiling a photographic history of East Cobb and is looking for your help! She is assembling historic images of East Cobb County and the stories that go with them to include in an upcoming book. Here’s a wishlist of photos wanted:
- East Cobb farm life and farming operations
- Old church photos
- Club photos
- School photographs
- East Cobb residents with their cars of yesteryear
- Local residents wearing fashions of the day
- East Cobb buildings under construction
- “Old” East Cobb families, such as, Keheley, Dickerson, Lassiter, Blackwell, Powers, etc.
- Political leaders, old political signs from East Cobb
The importance of family collections cannot be overemphasized. Vintage photographs become increasingly fragile and by scanning and reproducing them in a book, they become available for all to see.
“It’s going to be a history of our community and we’d like the family histories in there as well,” Cynthia says.
To share your photographs and stories, please contact Cynthia Rozzo at 770-640-7070 or you can email your photos as separate jpg attachments to: firstname.lastname@example.org. “EAST COBBER staff members are available to come by and pick up photos at your home, we’ll scan them in the office and safely return your vintage photos,” says Cynthia, “We will also be videotaping oral histories. So, if you’d like to share your story, call the EAST COBBER office to schedule an appointment.”
Photographs, stories and pieces of the past — they are all wanted. If you would like to help keep local history alive by volunteering your talents to this effort, feel free to contact email@example.com.
