Agency hopes to return photos found after 9-11

August 24, 2005


— About 6,000 photographs were scattered among the debris around the World Trade Center site after the 9-11 attacks. And now, the Port Authority wants to return those images to their owners.

Families of the 2,749 victims of the Sept. 11 attack were first given access to the photographs in January. But now the Port Authority is expanding access to a Web site dedicated to finding homes for the photographs, particularly to the estimated 50,000 people who worked there.

Nearly 2,200 photos, largely recovered during sorting at a former landfill, were severely damaged and sent to Eastman Kodak in June 2002 for restoration.

Employees of trade center tenants can log on to the Web site and enter a user name and a password to view the photos.
