Port Jeff Digital Archive Hits Another Milestone With Over 20,000 Images

Legis. Kara Hahn stopped by to tour the village's historical archive room.

It was only last October that Ken Brady, the official Port Jefferson historian, said that had grown to 1,250 images.

In the last eight months or so, that number has increased dramatically. Just last week the village announced that the number of digitized images that have been scanned, researched and cataloged is now over 20,000.

According to Brady, over 2,300 of those digitized images are now available online in the "Village History" section of portjeff.com and more are added weekly.

Not all of them are photos.

“While still emphasizing photos and postcards, you will note that portjeff.com now includes images of stock certificates, trade cards, currency and related paper ephemera,” Brady told Patch last year.

Suffolk County Legis. Kara Hahn joined former Mayor Jeanne Garant and Brady to tour the archive room at the . Hahn was given an archive photo to hang in her office after her tour.

Head over to portjeff.com and click on this history section to see the images.

Correction: An earlier version of this article said that the digital archive contained almost 20,000 images. It contains over 20,000 images and of those 2,300 are available online.
