HSP has a rich collection of photographs, from early daguerreotypes to rare crystoleums and even modern digital prints. At this event, HSP’s Photograph Conservator D’Arcy White will discuss the highlights of HSP’s fascinating photography archive—and the stories that they tell.

HSP members are invited to arrive at 5:00 p.m. for a special tour of the conservation lab to see first-hand how cased photographs are preserved. Space is limited for this members-only tour. Please RSVP by contacting Keith Lyons at 215-732-6200 ext. 235 or klyons@hsp.org.
