The photographs in the Bridges of Cecil County collection were taken from original prints belonging to the State Highway Administration. Permission to use the digitized prints in an online collection for the public was generously granted by Neil J. Pederson, Administrator of the SHA.
The photos in this collection are from slides taken of original prints produced by the Hughes Company, a commercial photography firm then located in Baltimore. Copy prints, copy negatives and slides have been added to Cecil College’s special collection of historical photographs of Cecil County. A portion of the prints were exhibited at Cecil College on December 21, 1987 in a well-attended and highly-praised show. The Project Director for the exhibition was Bill Short with much assistance from Kristi Eisenberg. Happily, Kristi also was instrumental in making an online collection possible by digitizing all the slides.
