Exhibition - Edwardian Photographers of Louth

Wednesday 7th September to Saturday 29th October

With modern digital cameras, the art of taking a good photograph hasn’t been easier than it is today, but hark back to an earlier period in photography history when plates were used – you only had the one chance to take that perfect picture. This exhibition includes a selection of fascinating photographs taken during the Edwardian era of Louth and the equipment that the photographers would have used to take such photographs.

The exhibition also celebrates the 60th Anniversary of Louth’s Photographic Society.
