Rare Photographs

On August 8 our “Rare Photographs of C’ville” will feature many vintage images of Charlottesville that we’ve not shown before. We tell the stories behind the photos, but keep the history lesson to a minimum.  This hour-long presentation is photo driven, with many photos that will take you back in time and reveal a few things even the old-timers might not know.


Please join us for this enjoyable Thursday evening event. Show starts at 7 pm. but come early to enjoy food and drinks from C’ville Coffee.  $5 at the door helps support the work we do collecting and digitizing rare and unusual C’ville photographs.


The photographs come from a wide range of sources. We have the work of both professional and amateur photographers.  Many families, businesses, and individuals have contributed photos to our library, often just one and two at a time. We are grateful for these generous contributions and shows like this one are our way of showing off these great looks into Charlottesville’s past.

As an added bonus for August, on Sunday the 11th, we will have an encore of one of the shows we did earlier this summer.  “Films of C’ville” will return with a few changes.  If you missed it the first time around or would like to see the fascinating film clips from 1929-1941 again, join us for this special Sunday afternoon (5 pm.) show.
