Hidden for A Century: Hundreds of Photographs Found in an Attic

Join David Whitcomb for a talk on his incredible find of photos and the equipment appearing to belong to James Ellery Hale, a successful portrait photographer who in the 1880s moved to Seneca Falls, N.Y., where the first women’s rights convention was held in 1848. Mr. Whitcomb, a local lawyer who had bought the Geneva, NY building to expand his practice, pushed an access panel out of the way and poked his head inside. He saw an attic with a vaulted ceiling and crawled in, thinking he might find a few items to sell at a flea market. What he discovered transported him back more than a century to an era when suffragists were campaigning for women’s rights and photography portrait studios had started to crop up in American cities.
