VND photos enhanced exhibit
I wish to thank the Valley News Dispatch for sharing so many great photographs for our Eddie Adams Day and our Eddie Adams Month at the Allegheny Valley Historical Society Museum.
It was startling for many of us at the museum, as well as the visitors, to see these photos presented in this way — framed and glossy; so much more powerful than the familiar newsprint. Many were of events that we vividly remember because of these very photos and the accompanying story. It made these stories more personal to us.
We are more appreciative of the skills and quality of men and women who are photojournalists at our newspaper.
The museum and the New Kensington Camera Club deeply appreciate the coverage and support the Valley News Dispatch has given us for many years. It was indeed an honor for us to display these wonderful photographs.
We are very grateful.
