The Pasadena Museum of History Research Library and Archives maintains the area’s largest and most complete photographic archives of Pasadena and the west San Gabriel Valley – an estimated one million historical images. In 2015, the Museum embarked on an ambitious, yet successful project, the Great History Freeze, to preserve 200,000 at-risk, irreplaceable historical photo negatives through cryogenics. This project successfully stopped the deterioration of the negatives, ensuring their viability for generations to come. A selection of representative images from these collections are featured in the Museum's premiere online exhibition, making them available for the first time to a wider audience.

Join Education and Program Manager, Daniel Nevarez for this one-on-one interview with PMH Director of Collections and Exhibition Curator, Anuja Navare, as we explore the journey from the Great History Freeze to our four-part exhibition series, Frozen Frames: Preserving Pasadena’s Visual Legacy
