Scanning Old Memories A Shoe Box At A Time

NPR: August 24, 2009

How many pictures are in shoe boxes? Sam Allen, CEO of ScanCafe, commissioned a study to find out.

“In the U.S. right now, there are about 550 billion analog photographs,” Allen says.

Allen says most people don’t realize that they are taking a risk by letting their photographs sit around.

“These images are dying every day, and they die a little bit more, and they fade away, and people don’t understand that,” he says.
