Lester Public Library inherited a collection of photographs from a local photographer named Herbert Wentorf. His images focused on local landmarks, industries and institutions, and people going about daily life in Two Rivers. For reasons of preservation and protection, this outstanding collection spent many years housed in a locked cabinet at the library.
In 2011, the library applied for and received a grant to digitize the collection, making it accessible not just to local residents and visitors, but to anyone with an internet connection. To search or simply enjoy these fabulous historic photos, use the following link:
