Formosa Television’s English-language news last night did a short feature on the Taiwan Pictures Digital Archive (aka Vintage Formosa or taipics.com). The report included an interview with Marc who collected the images and designed the site. It also juxtaposed some of the historical images with footage of present day Taipei. You can see the video of the report on the FTV website (embedded video may not be compatible with some browsers or operating sytems).
Marc has put a huge amount of working into building up the archive of photos. The website currently hosts about 4,500 images. The site had just 1,000 images when we launched it in March 2008 and 3,200 photos when it was redesigned in July 2010. Please spend some time browsing through the site at taipics.com.
