2013 C’ville Coffee Shows

photo copy 2We’ve concluded our series of photo presentations at C’ville Coffee for the 2013 season. Our final show had a packed house viewing a wide range of C’ville images ranging from downtown history and UVA rarities to historic landmarks and famous people. Thanks to everyone who turned out and to all the supporters that made these shows a lot of fun all year long.  We couldn’t do it without the contributions of photographs from the private collections of Charlottesville businesses, families and individuals.  If you have something you’d like to let us scan for future shows and projects, please email  Steve Trumbull, anytime.

Roseberry VarsityEd Roseberry and friends, photographed for the September, 1947 issue of Varsity Magazine for an article on fashion tips for college men. This photo was taken near The Corner on University Avenue.

We also presented photographs of FDR’s limousine at Mem Gym, a train carrying historic documents from the National Archives at Union Station on West Main, and several previously unseen photographs of Main Street and the Downtown Mall.

All of the programs we produced this year are available for hire as a private viewing for your family, club meeting, or other gathering.  Very reasonable rates.  Contact us for more info.

Thanks again to our supporters for a successful 2013.  We are already at work planning projects for the year ahead!
