Digital Public Library @ One Year

The Digital Public Library is a year old now. This article gives a good overview of the site, and relates how it is growing by leaps and bounds. A great resource to keep in mind when looking for vintage photos, historical documents and all sorts of other public domain and primary sources. Just poking around in there, searching for the word Brockport, yielded quite a few items, including this photo with  accompanying information:

Delia [Della?] Eloise Berry, who also performed as D. Eloise Morgan, was born ca. 1869. Her marriage to George D. Morgan of Brockport, N.Y., was announced on p. 1 of The Washington Times, June 10, 1895, where she is named as Miss Della Eloise Berry.
