Wednesday 7th September to Saturday 29th October
With modern digital cameras, the art of taking a good photograph hasn’t been easier than it is today, but hark back to an earlier period in photography history when plates were used – you only had the one chance to take that perfect picture. This exhibition includes a selection of fascinating photographs taken during the Edwardian era of Louth and the equipment that the photographers would have used to take such photographs.
The exhibition also celebrates the 60th Anniversary of Louth’s Photographic Society.
As part of Lincolnshire Heritage Open Days Louth Museum will be open on Saturday 10th September from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm when admission to the Louth Museum will be free.
Our volunteer guides will be giving short tours throughout the day which will concentrate on Louth museum’s original collections of birds, butterflies and beetles. Afterwards you are most welcome to browse through the rest of the museum and visit our latest exhibition about Louth’s Edwardian photographers.
