Do You Like History, Photography, and Want to Explore More of DC? — Then Here’s A Great Opportunity for You!

Here’s an event that will be of interest to those who have an affinity for Washington history and photography — walking tours in June through August developed in partnership with Cultural Tourism DC, Washington Walks, FotoDC, and the Historical Society of Washington, D.C. I’ll be participating in the Ward 1, Park View tour.

The full announcement from the Historical Society is below:

Summer Urban Photography Series Registration is Open!

The Historical Society’s collections hold over 100,000 photographs that illustrate the history of Washington. Many of these historic images capture D.C. neighborhoods block-by-block and document changes in the city’s built environment over many decades.

Produced in partnership with Cultural Tourism DC, Washington Walks, and FotoDC, the Historical Society will hold photography workshops and walking tours to help capture neighborhoods throughout the city. Selected photographs will then be featured in an online exhibit and could even be added to the Society’s own collections!
