The photo above is an example of a scan of one of the halftone black and white photos in a yearbook which was about 1.25" wide.


We scanned the image at 600 dpi to a tif (tagged image format) file, applied a gaussian blur of 2.25 to make the impact of halftones least visible, proportionately resized it so that the resulting image is 150 pixels wide, and then saved it as a jpg for presentation in a web page.


Self-serve photocopy - $.25
Assisted scan - $5.00
MHSA-prepared tif & jpg - $10

Following are the students listed and photographed in the 1955/57 yearbook of the Coaldale Bible School. We offer this listing in the event that a biographer, historian, or genealogist is interested in locating a photograph of any of these people. Apart from the names, each student's photo is accompanied by a Bible verse.

If you would like a copy of a photograph (photocopy, tif or jpg file), from our yearbook collection, you are welcome to come to the MHSA and prepare your own copy. Or, we can prepare a tif and jpg for you and send them to you by e-mail attachment.
