This month we will have two photo presentations at C’ville Coffee on Harris Street.The first show is this coming Thursday and is a collection of rare photographs we have gathered from a wide range of sources. Many of these images will be shown in public for the first time this Thursday. The subjects include Free Bridge, long forgotten businesses on West Main, and a number of photos of the First Baptist Church that used to stand on Jefferson Street. We have vintage aerial views, a President visiting Charlottesville, and an historic fire that wiped out an entire block on Main Street over 100 years ago. This is one slideshow not to be missed! August 8 at 7 pm.
The second show is next Sunday, August 11, at 5 pm. this show will be an encore of the “Films of C’ville” show with a few new changes to the presentation. Buddy Voshell will be on hand again to narrate his father’s hand-held movies from the late 20s and early 30s. If you missed this one before, here is your chance to see some vintage film footage of UVA and C’ville. Even if you saw these clips, there are some new additions to this show you’ll enjoy seeing.
Both shows are $5.
The above photo is of the Belmont Bridge circa 1900. The exact date and photographer are unknown. It is an outtake from our Thursday evening show. Although it won’t be included, many other rare and seldom-seen C’ville images will be.
