mediaBOOM Launches Portraits of Guilford

To celebrate the town of Guilford’s 375th Anniversary, local digital ad agency mediaBOOM designed and developed a commemorative website that serves as a photographic journey through the town’s history. The website features stunning photography, courtesy of the Guilford Free Library’s Historical Room, spanning 140 years from the beginning of the 1860’s to the year 2000. Users can browse through the decades, learn about each photograph’s history, and share the images on social media.

Regarding the inspiration for creating this commemorative website, mediaBOOM President, Frank DePino, said, “I grew up in Guilford and have had my business here for over a decade, so to have the opportunity to be part of our town’s 375th anniversary was a great experience for our agency.”

Guilford ad agency mediaBOOM obtained all the images on the website from the Historical Room at the Guilford Free Library, with the help of Historical Room Specialist Patty Baldwin and Reference Librarian Rob McCole.

In addition to being a commemorative and educational website, “Portraits of Guilford” serves as a virtual hub for many of the library’s historical photographs. By converting the images from hard copies to digital files, these timeless photographs are now preserved and easily accessible for people to enjoy now and for generations to come.
