Exhibit 3: Photos,
Postcards & Prints
The Photos Collection includes more than
1,500 photographs, prints and postcards portraying life in Lexington during
the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Images in the Worthen Collection
depict Battle of Lexington reenactments and celebrations, historic
properties and landmarks, houses, town buildings, schools and businesses,
and individuals and groups. The Worthens collected photographs and took
many pictures themselves to document Lexington’s history as well as the
ways in which the town changed during their lifetimes.
Note: More images can be seen in the Lantern Slides exhibit.
