AROUND TOWN – EXTRAS
Here are some extra “going ons” around town that are not affiliated with CACC, but may be great spots for photo opportunities or photography exhibits, and may have been mentioned in our meetings!

 

Missouri History Museum Photography Exhibit:

Capturing the City: Photographs from the Streets of St. Louis, 1900–1930

When: August 13, 2016 – January 22, 2017

During the first two decades of the 20th century, the St. Louis Street Department generated one of the most extensive troves of photographs ever taken of our city. We’ve used a selection of these images to create Capturing the City, a photography-based exhibition that allows visitors to experience historic St. Louis in new and eye-opening ways.
