Museum Monday: In the Upstairs Gallery of the Hill Memorial Museum there is a new exhibit on the "History of Photography in Sussex County". The photographs and other objects on display are all from our collection. Early photographic processes are represented by daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, and tintypes. Early prints are represented by albumen prints and cyanotypes. The work of many Sussex County photographers is shown by their carte de visites and cabinet cards. The A.C.Townley Glass Plate collection is discussed and examples of original glass plates are shown. The work of Martin F. Wintermute is shown including his iconic glass plate photographs of the 1890 explosion of a Delaware, Lackawanna & Western locomotive at the Waterloo Station.

We are open Fridays from 9-1 and Saturdays, through Nov. 23, also from 9-1. Stop by and check out the many displays and/or do some research in our genealogy library.
