It’s your last chance to visit the Northfield Historical Society’s photography studio annex, a special part of the exhibition Through the Camera Lens: Early Northfield Photography. The annex will be closing next Tuesday, May 17, to make room for a new exhibition, Malt-O-Meal Originals: An Exhibition of Firsts.
Highlights in this gallery include a slideshow of historic photographs that did not make it into the exhibition, an antique studio camera from the 1920s, late 19th-century clothing artifacts, and our reproduction hand-painted photography studio backdrop. If you have ever wished to take a 19th-century selfie holding a prop parasol or wearing a moustache, now is your chance. Plus, you can share your photo with us using the hashtag #northfieldphotos.
And don’t worry if you can’t make it to the museum by Tuesday. The main photography exhibition will still be on
view through September.
