If you’re not already familiar with C’ville Coffee on Harris Street, you should stop by. It is one of the more spacious and welcoming coffee houses in Charlottesville. Owner Toan Nguyen has been hosting everything from private meetings to sell-out music performances as well as providing customers with a pleasant atmosphere to enjoy food and drinks.
And now, every second Thursday of each month, C’ville coffee is the venue for photo presentations by Charlottesville Historical Image Library. These slideshows feature vintage photographs and present local history in a way you haven’t seen before. We have had several shows so far, including “Roseberry’s Charlottesville” “Main Street, C’ville” and “Signs of C’ville” Join us for the next event, June 13th at 7 p.m. $5 at the door helps us continue our work digitizing historical images and doing current documentation of Charlottesville.
This second image is what C’ville Coffee looked like in a former life.
Our private, digital library is an ever-growing collection of photographs used in local exhibits, publications, advertising, for academic purposes, and in our own history projects. CHIL is the creator of “Charlottesville Then and Now”.
