Exhibit Opening: Wilmette in Photographs, 1850-1950

Sunday, October 6, 2019
1:00 - 3:00 p.m.
Free event

We hope you’ll join us on Sunday, October 6th from 1 to 3 p.m. to help celebrate the opening of our exciting new exhibit, which explores a century of photographs of Wilmette people and places.  Antique cameras, glass photographic plates, tintypes, stereo cards, and other unusual artifacts from the Museum’s collection join dozens of rarely seen photos in the main gallery to illustrate how developments in camera technology, and the emergence of fads like the “real photo postcard” craze, resulted in a treasure trove of images that have forever captured the look of everyday life in one small Midwestern town.  This opening reception is free to the public, and so are the refreshments, so do come see us.
