Historypin features Eddie Wong and Visual Communications

Remember our post several weeks ago about the wonders of Historypin?  Well, on Friday while everyone in the States was reeling from Black Friday madness and the after effects of Tryptophan, Historypin featured Eddie Wong, one of VC’s founders (and VC, by default!) on their blog!

Eddie Wong, one of the four VC founders, at the old VC office in Griffith Park. Circa 1974-1978.

Historypin collections allow people to suggest additional details for posted photos, and Eddie Wong suggested more details about the photo of him.  From there, the Historypin staff got to know him and his involvement with VC and decided to post a “Story of the Week” about him.  They were kind enough to tweet about us (and the archivist here nearly died from excitement) and link to our blog, too.  You can read the “Story of the Week” here.

Thanks, Eddie!
