Here's a clear example of the value of historic newspaper digitization. The Nashville Tennessean is digitized and searchable. I found a reference to Will H. Stokes registering his new car in 1914 - complete with plate number. This photo includes his Overland and likely his wife looking potentially impatient for him to complete the shot. Few Chattanooga newspapers are digitized despite options to do so at little to no cost. Read more here.
More Stoke’s photos will be posted as time and resources allow. Each print is scanned, and post-processed to restore color fading. Some damaged areas that can be repaired in Photoshop are done. The sepia-tone is reapplied from the original scan. And, original scans are always kept.
