Summer 2019 Theme

The summer theme at the museum is “Capturing History Through the Camera Lens” with a display of many devices which made use of photographic film.

You will see many devices which make use of photographic film; from an Edison Projecting Kinetoscope (1897-1900), a finely made 4×5 inch folding field camera, to a microfilm camera and reader used in libraries and other institutions. to keep a lot of printed material without taking up much room. While these are of particular interest, there are numerous other cameras and projectors for both still photos and movies.

We also have a wonderful display about our local movie theatre (now closed), the Toby Theatre.
