Last evening, we ran through a preview (along with a couple of bottles of wine) in Meadowbrook Hills for a small gathering of historical photo enthusiasts. With a couple of minor tweaks the presentation will be ready for our C’ville Coffee showing next Thursday. An additional show is scheduled for the following Sunday to provide a late afternoon option.
The show covers a range of subjects including Midway, Vinegar Hill (rare color images), and a look back at a once-vibrant mural that has all but vanished on West Main Street. We will also see photos of the Third Street Entrance to The Paramount Theater and find out why it ever existed. We’ll view a number of century-old photographs showing one of UVA’s early sports facilities, and some remarkable portraits from the early Twentieth Century. Lots of photos, all of Charlottesville.
This is the second show in our series of Rare and Remarkable Photographs. If you missed the one in August, don’t let this month slip by.
Thursday, September 12, 7 pm.
Sunday, September 15, 5pm.
