Toronto. Our president Lewko (Clint) Hryhorijiw passed along this note from the Monmouth County Historical Association in New Jersey. The MCHA do a number of online presentations. Unfortunately I missed this one on the 20th of May when Gary Saretzky, professor of Photography spoke on Gustavus Pach.
“The Pach Brothers were prolific photographers who captured many facets of Monmouth County history in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. They photographed the fabulously wealthy, but also documented intimate glimpses of everyday American life through their images. If you’ve ever wondered what it was like inside a local apothecary shop, or perhaps how familiar places like the main streets or boardwalks in New Jersey have changed since 1880, then the Pach Brothers are for you!
“See the sights and styles of this bygone era. Cars, clothing, and even beloved pets tell the story of those who lived here well over a century ago. Gary Saretzky, professor of Photography and total rock star among archivists highlight this incredible photography studio with a focus on Gustavus Pach.”
If you are interested in history, have a look at the MCHA web site and join up for the next free monthly lecture.
