As the photo show "Tunbridge: Then and Now" nears its closing date, Tunbridge Historical Society President Euclid Farnham and photographer Geoff Hansen will give a gallery talk at the Tunbridge Public Library on Sunday, Dec. 28, 2014, at 3 p.m.
Displayed as diptychs, the show is a collection of over two dozen photographs of Tunbridge, Vt., that compare how the town looked over 100 years ago to today.
As part of the talk, the show will be projected onscreen while Farnham and Hansen talk about the stories behind the images and how photography has evolved over the past century.
For the art show, Hansen and Farnham looked through the society's photo collection to find places that have changed drastically and others that have stayed the same. Hansen went to those places to photograph them over the past few months.
Euclid Farnham is an eighth-generation Vermonter whose interest in history is reflected in the society's large collection of documents, photographs and artifacts. Established in 1961, the society will be moving this winter to a new archival space added onto the town's library.
Employed as an editor and photographer at the Valley News in Lebanon, N.H., Geoff Hansen has had a long-standing interest in Tunbridge since moving to Vermont in 1989. He has been a Tunbridge resident since 2000.
The talk is free and open to the public. The photo show is on display at the library until January 4, 2015.
