Amateur Beats Gov't at Digitizing Newspapers: Tom Tryniski’s Weird, Wonderful Website"
The site, FultonHistory, is amazing in its own right, chock full of wonderful New York newspapers. But on top of that reason.com reports that the Library of Congress' historic newspaper site,
ChroniclingAmerica, has 5 million newspaper pages on its site. In
January, visitors to Fultonhistory.com accessed just
over 6 million pages while Chronicling
America pulled fewer than 3 million views.
Mr. Tryniski's site is free and even though he has been approached by big companies with proposals for partnership, he refuses all in order to keep his work free for all.
This site is well worth checking out. Be sure you take a peek at his wonderful online collection of old postcards too.
