The Wilmette Historical Museum invites the entire community to the opening of a new exhibit, “Wilmette in Photographs, 1850-1950.”  The Main Gallery exhibit explores a century of photographs of Wilmette people and places.  Antique cameras, glass photographic plates, tintypes, stereo cards, and other unusual artifacts from the Museum’s collection join dozens of rarely seen photos to illustrate how developments in camera technology, and the emergence of fads like the “real photo postcard” craze, resulted in a treasure trove of images that have forever captured the look of everyday life in one small Midwestern town.
