Conserving Victorian Values at Dover Harbour Board
In the last month ADEC Preview has signed new agreements with a range of new clients to provide scanning and archiving services. One of them is Dover Harbour Board, which has selected ADEC Preview to scan its entire collection of over 20,000 large format drawings and plates.
Some of the drawings date back over 100 years and show the docks as the were in Victorian times. Apart from the historic value though, there are huge practical benefits to having the drawings available digitally. Drawings which previously could take many hours to locate will be available for immediate access and, of course, there is the reassurance of having an electronic backup for this unique and valuable historical record.
