How should I prepare my photos for scanning?
Please take them out of any albums and stack them in the order you would like them scanned. If you would like them organized into folders. You can put each category in a separate ziplock bag with a label / note inside.

South San Francisco, CA Info:
South San Francisco lies north of San Bruno and San Francisco International Airport in a small valley south of Daly City, Colma, Brisbane, and San Bruno Mountain, east of Pacifica and the hills of the Coast Range, and west of the waters of San Francisco Bay. Locals often refer to the town as South City, in much the same way that San Francisco is called “The City.” Despite its name, South San Francisco does not border San Francisco, with Brisbane being between them. The area which is now South San Francisco was originally part of Rancho Buri Buri, a large Mexican land grant dating to 1827. By the 1920s the city was “the smokestack capital of the Peninsula.” South San Francisco proudly called itself “The Industrial City”, a motto immortalized in 1923 by a huge sign on a hillside overlooking the city. Industry remained the city’s main economic focus through the 1950s. At the end of the war the city’s focus shifted away from “smokestack industries” toward light industry, warehousing, and residential development. The major manufacturers closed, and new development was focused on office parks, housing, high-rise hotels, and yacht harbors. The biotechnology giant Genentech opened in 1976, leading to South San Francisco’s new identity as “the birthplace of biotechnology”.
