Lunchtime Program Series Features 1890s Photographs
Early 1890s images of houses, churches, commercial buildings, street scenes, and much more will be showcased at “History at High Noon: Charles N. Taylor Photographs” on Thursday, June 20 from 12:05 to 12:45 p.m. Attendees are invited to bring their lunch to this free presentation at the Sioux City Public Museum.
Charles N. Taylor was itinerant photographer, who set up shop in Sioux City in 1890. Presenter Tom Munson, Archives Manager, will highlight the collection of rare photographs which provide some of the best documentation of Sioux City’s Boom Era. While most photographers of the era were focused on portraiture, Taylor’s images captured the local landscape. Taylor left Sioux City during the Financial Panic of 1893.
The Sioux City Public Museum is located at 607 4th Street in downtown Sioux City. For more information, call 712-279-6174 or visit siouxcitymuseum.org.
