The Columbia County News-Times is assisting a local group to establish a digital photo archive of life in Columbia County prior to 1960.

Photos that depict school activities or show buildings or businesses that are no longer around are of particular interest.

E-mail photos to staff photographer Jim Blaylock at jim.blaylock@augustachronicle.com or deliver them to the Columbia County News-Times at 4272 Washington Road in the Publix Shopping Center.

Photos will be copied and returned.
