I found a box of 3,500 negatives from the Montgomery News. These are Black & White 35mm negative strips and the images appeared in the newspaper. The images date between 1990 and 1995. This is the first post showing some of the scans. If you have additional information on any of these photos (like names, dates or events) please post a comment or contact me.
