The Memory Room Online

A photograph can evoke much more than a memory. It evokes emotion! Use the images in our online Memory Room to encourage conversation, share stories, laughter, and connection.

It is easy to use. Just click on the photograph you would like to look at. Each image has information about the picture and provides questions that encourage you to think and reflect about the what is happening. We encourage you to view the images with family or a friend to really get those conversations going.
