A little archives humor to brighten your day: I recently came across a 1945 photo in the Hercules Inc. Image Collection labelled “too old,” meaning the photo was out-of-date and shouldn’t be used in the company’s publicity materials. Seeing the notation, I couldn’t help but chuckle since, as all archivists know, if it’s “too old,” it’s definitely the right age for the archives!
