Bites and Bits of History: Historic Preservation Through the Lens of Historic Images
Thursday, May 19 2022 @ 12:00 pm
Bill Lawson, MVHS Executive Director, will present Historic Preservation Through the Lens of Historic Images on Thursday, May 19, 2022 at 12:00pm at the Tyler History Center. This presentation will feature historic images taken in and around Youngstown in the years after the Civil War. Expansion of the local iron industry caused a population and building boom which dramatically changed the landscape of the City. The MVHS Archives includes numerous original photographic prints and slides from that era, and those presented will be compared to current images from the same vantage points.
