New website SepiaTown - Over 150 mapped historical San Francisco images for you to explore!

From: "Sepia Town"

We're writing to tell you about a new historical image website we've built that we think you and the followers of Central Pacific Railroad Photographic History Museum will be interested in (love your site, by the way)...

A sample San Francisco image on the site ...

SepiaTown is a website (mobile version coming soon) that lets people experience the past through a large and growing collection of user-submitted, mapped historical images.

We already have over 150 mapped San Francisco images in the collection for you to explore, plus images from a host of cities around the world.

In the coming months we'll be adding a number of new features to the site: mobile version, filtering by date and media type, film and audio upload, plus individualized pages for registered users.

If you have historical images you'd like to share, we invite you to upload, map and share them through the SepiaTown collection.  Registration is fast and free, and our upload and mapping process is as easy as pie, and each image features a link to your site (if you so choose).

Please feel free to contact us with any ideas or questions. If you like the project, we'd greatly appreciate it if you could help us get the word out.

We hope you enjoy the site,
