BRUNSWICK — Pejepscot History Center has announced the digitization and online launch of its extensive photo collection, comprising more than 26,000 images chronicling the history of Brunswick, Topsham, and Harpswell.

This achievement was made possible through the efforts of the center’s volunteers, who digitized and cataloged each photograph.

The collection is scheduled to be accessible to the public via CatalogIt Hub starting Monday, April 1, providing a digital portal for enthusiasts, historians, and the community to explore the visual tapestry of the region’s past, according to a news release from Sarah Sharpton, outreach manager with the center.

To celebrate this milestone, PHC invites the public to participate in a contest. Entrants are encouraged to browse the online collection and select their favorite photograph, accompanied by a brief explanation of why it resonates with them. The three most compelling entries will be selected by PHC staff, and the chosen images will be transformed into unique postcards, available for purchase in our shop this season.

Participants can select their favorite photograph and email their entry, along with a brief explanation of why it resonates, to
