Photo Slideshow Celebrates “Signs of C’ville”

Posted: Updated:

Some signs of times gone by will get a new life Thursday night at C'ville Coffee. A slideshow called the "Signs of C'ville" will celebrate photographs of Charlottesville signs, murals, ads and storefronts.

Some of the pictures date back to the 1910s. Others are new photos of signs and storefronts that have lasted the test of time.

"Signs have a way, unlike almost anything else of evoking the memories that really bring you back to a very specific place and time. A lot of time you'll see the buildings not change that much but the stores and the signage in front of them change quite a bit over the years," said Steve Trumbull, the slideshow's photographer.

Trumbull will present the slideshow and shed light on the history of the photographs.

The event kicks off at 7 p.m. at C'ville Coffee.
