Apna Heritage Archive reaches a milestone with 1000th archived image!

We have reached a milestone with our 1000th image archived on our digital database! Archiving is no small feat as it requires a lot of attention to detail in obtaining information from participants who allow us to scan their pictures. Our 1000th image pictured here is from our volunteer Salgram Dass, a powerful portrait of family of his father and mother Sarwan and Amro Dass and their first child sister Kanta. The image below tells a forgotten story of where many Punjabi migrants came to live in Wolverhampton from 1960s onwards. This photo was taken on Inkerman St, in the Heath Town area. The area is still synonymous for where new migrants live today. So we're glad we achieved a milestone, only 1000 more images to go! Phew!?
