AGBU launches Photo Archive on Flickr

In a welcome move, Armenian General Benevolent Union (AGBU) launches Photo Archive on Flickr.

"Included among the treasures is the never before seen AGBU YPGNY Ellen Gerard Collection (pictured below) which was purchased by the AGBU Young Professional of Greater New York in 2000 and has been under lock and key until today."

*A page from the Gerard Album depicting the nurse (right) who amassed the collection and a blind boy (left) who, according to Gerard’s politically-incorrect caption, “regained enough sight to become useful.” (source)
