Since the past summer, I have switched gears from collecting and documenting archival material to showcasing the material. I have finished creating an annotated bibliography for both the images and the texts I have collected which feature children in urban, city environments. I started the project's official YouTube channel (curatingstory) and created a teaser video and a short profile on the Ryerson University Library and Special Collections as they have been extremely vital to our research. I have now begun pinning the images I have found on an amazing website: Historypin, seems like it was made for our project! It allows you to visually indicate on a map the exact or almost exact location of where a photograph, video or even song was documented. I have begun pinning all the images I've found which correspond with an exact location in the city of Toronto. I'm looking forward to creating more content for the channel and culling through the materials to find their present day locations. Perhaps I'll do a whole video revisiting those locations! Stay tuned!
