Photography Show at C'ville Coffee Celebrates Charlottesville Icon
One of Roseberry's photographs
A Charlottesville icon is celebrating his 88th birthday by sharing his life's work with the community. The photography show "Roseberry's Charlottesville" kicks off Thursday at C'ville Coffee.
Ed Roseberry's photos capture the south pacific during World War II, and years of Charlottesville history. Roseberry says the show will let young people see the community's history, and remind older people of their past.
"Most local people who have been here for a long time - particularly people who are as old as I am, realize that this takes them back, gives them a window into the past, and things that they remember and enjoy," said Roseberry.
"Roseberry's Charlottesville" will show off old favorites and never before seen photos from Roseberry's collection of more than 180,000 negatives.
The show starts Thursday at C'ville Coffee at 7 p.m., and runs again on Sunday at 5 p.m.
Tickets are $5 at the door.
