This second “Bring your history” day took place in a shopping mall in the city centre of Mikkeli – a place where you surely wouldn´t expect to run into archives! But the experiment was successful – the archivists representing and introducing the topotheque tool in the mall generated great interest in priorly invited content donators and more importantly captured the attention of by-passer. Mikkeli as a city has strong historic military roots and is currently often referred to as the archives’ capital of Finland.
In deed, during this event over 700 images, amongst them some extreme rarities, got digitized and will be uploaded to the topotheque of Mikkeli, soon also publicly accessible online.
