Unearthing Some Great Pics

As you may or may not know, we've undertaken the process of converting all of NSC's photo albums to digital files. The intent... to preserve all of our pics and also to share them. We've posted some of the pics on Facebook, and at some point in the future, we'll be getting all of these pics online. We hope to create an online library of photos where people can not only see all of the old NSC pics and videos, but tag people in the pics. We want to create a virtual NSC museum so that whether you're in the Northwoods or hundreds of miles away, you can relive old camp memories.

This is obviously a cumbersome task and scanning thousands of pics is just one step. At times its more than a little tedious, but thankfully this step in the process is nearing an end. What makes this all worth while, though, is when I stumble upon some great pictures, some half a century old, some just a decade or two that elicit some great personal memories. Most recently I discovered some pics that are clearly from the early days of NSC. Some of these may actually pre-date North Star as there are post cards of the resort that was on the site of North Star. There are also some great shots of Lou and Renee. For everyone's enjoyment, I've uploaded these pics, about 75 of them, and created the following slide show. I hope you enjoy them.

We'll be sure to keep everyone updated as the virtual museum progresses.
