The Talbot Historical Society will open its latest exhibit entitled “The Bay from Above—Aerial Views of the Chesapeake, Then and Now” on Friday, April 16, in the Lawrence M. Denton Extended Museum. This retrospective photo gallery tells the story of our everchanging shoreline here in Talbot County over the last century. It offers fascinating visualization of how our county has changed and evolved.
Pioneer photographer, H. Robins Hollyday (1898-1981), began to take aerial photographs of the Eastern Shore’s lands and waterways in the 1920’s. With these images as benchmarks, local pilot and photographer, Hunter H. Harris, has done a re-shoot of the same scenes as precisely as possible. The exhibit pairs these “then and now” photographs for a captivating and thought-provoking glance into our past with a comparative view of the present.
“The Bay from Above” will be open to the public, free of charge, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Wednesday through Saturday, beginning April 16, 2022.
