The Safety Harbor Public Library is seeking historical photos of our City for digital preservation. We are looking for photos with historical significance, specifically the downtown area including buildings, homes, businesses, and individuals noteworthy to Safety Harbor history prior to 1985. For a full list of sought after topics, please see below.
We will scan and digitize your historical Safety Harbor photographs and provide you with high quality digital images. Selected photos will be added to our digital history collection, and may be used in materials created to celebrate Safety Harbor’s 2017 Centennial.
A signed waiver form (PDF) is required to be submitted along with the photos. This form can be downloaded, typed into, and printed using Adobe Reader. All photos will be returned to the owner, along with a digitized image. We cannot accept personal photos without historic significance or digitize personal collections.
Photos can be dropped off at the library or mailed to: Safety Harbor Public Library – Attn: Local History
101 2nd St N
Safety Harbor, FL 34695
Sought After Topics for Photographs Please keep in mind when considering photographs that the overall goal of this project is to preserve photographs that are significant to Safety Harbor as a whole. This list is not intended to be definitive and is here to provide examples and guidance.
