Our upcoming show, “Signs of C’ville”, will explore, among other things, the Warehouse District of Charlottesville, where many of the buildings would display plain, but very large signs of the goods and services they provided. The signs were often painted in large block lettering across the front of the building.
The slideshow can be seen on Thursday, May 9th at C’ville Coffee on Harris Street. 7 pm. $5 at the door helps the Charlottesville Historical Image Library build its collection and provide more shows like this one.
