Almere city archive's digitisation effort

Almere is the city where I live. The first house was finished in 1976 and it became a municipality in 1984. One of the first cafes opened was "the groene wig".

As the Almere city archive is digitising its archive material like this becomes available. A friend of mine send me an e-mail about this.

I am in Buenos Aires a city with a rich history and it is easy to understand how a city like Almere can and does publish the fruits of its labour. I wish the archive of the city of Buenos Aires has the resources not only to digitise its archive but to publish it as well.
