Family activities 11:00am to 2:00pm
Ross Kelbaugh speaking at 2:00pm
The American Civil War brought photography into homes like never before. Continue the holiday togetherness with a day of engaging activities for the whole family to learn about photography before the age of cell phone cameras and digital prints. Process your own cyanotype, colorize your own Carte de Visite and build your own stereoscope!
At 2:00pm hear Divided Loyalties: Jewish Photographers in Civil War Baltimore, a talk by Ross Kelbaugh, an early photography expert. Kelbaugh is also the donor of the oldest known photo of Lloyd Street Synagogue.
