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.
The writer is the vice-president of the Allegheny Valley Historical Society and treasurer of the New Kensington Camera Club.

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
