Rare C’ville Photographs

img613Our next photo presentation at C’ville Coffee will feature a collection of rare Charlottesville photographs.  Pulled from a wide range of sources, these images have seldom, if ever, been shown publicly, or published in any manner.

Over the past many months the Charlottesville Historical Image Library has received contributions of photographs from families, businesses, and individuals; from photographers both professional and amateur. Our ever-growing collection contains some fascinating looks at Charlottesville and the surrounding area.

We have selected a few dozen of these to make up the slideshow on Thursday, August 8, at 7pm. $5 at the door helps CHIL to continue to collect and digitize rare C’ville images. Please join us for a show you won’t soon forget!

Above image is from the Roseberry Collection at CHIL, taken by Ed Roseberry in the 1950s of the C&O station on Water Street.
