Orem Care Center

October 22, 2009 – “We have the unique job of providing photos for a care center in Orem, Utah.   We are showcasing important landmarks in the Provo/Orem area.  Many hours were spent researching old photos at the Utah Historical Society.  It reinforced to us the importance of photography.  Thanks to someone taking a picture many years ago, the state archives are now full of incredible old pictures that at the time I’m sure seemed of little importance to the photographer!  Our challenge has been to recreate a ‘now’ picture of the same landmark to be displayed next to the ‘then’ picture.  This has been a fun project.  Glade even got to go for an airplane ride around the area to get some aerial shots.  So, take lots of pictures!!!  You are preserving a piece of history.  To see all the photos from this project, click here.”  Glade and Corinne
