The Frank Pfuhler Photo CD Collection

2004–2006

Campbell

The Frank Pfuhler Photo CD Collection is almost a library in itself, thanks to the heroic efforts of former ERA member Frank Pfuhler.

Beginning in 2004 and continuing for two years, Mr. Pfuhler scanned thousands of historic images from the Sprague Library Collection, labeled and indexed each one of them, then burned hundreds of copies of the 48-CD set. They sold like hotcakes at $30 a set.

Each CD contains anywhere from 300 images to close to 900. Though no longer available for sale (as of January 2009), a collection of labels from all 48 CDs can be seen here.

Mr. Pfuhler continued to archive over 100 historic images per month until his death on July 23, 2013. Some of the collections he archived can be seen on Photobucket.

The next issue of Headlights is in the mail. The entire 40-page issue is devoted to the Croydon Tramlink light rail system in London. This meticulous article was written by Stephen J. Parascondolo, webmaster of Croydon Tramlink, The Unofficial Site. As usual, the article is lushly illustrated with full-color (colour) photos by Mr. Parascondolo and Sandy Campbell, editor of Headlights. In addition, there is a 4-page, full-color Tramlink map supplement, a first for Headlights.
