In this free workshop, I put on my hat as a Historic Photograph Researcher and  teach participants how to identify the various types of historic photographs and how to care for them. As an avid student of vernacular images, I will share tips and tricks for reading and better understanding old photographs. Participants are encouraged to bring family and local images to discuss and analyze at the workshop. I will cover the tools used to identify photographic materials, discuss the various formats of old images, and share images from his collection of historic images.
