Ed Roseberry has been photographing Charlottesville, Virginia since the 1940’s, and his images and his memories are a treasure for our community.
I was privileged to see Mr. Roseberry present and discuss his photographs in a show arranged by Steve Trumbull. Both men are charming, and if you can manage to see a showing of the photographs, it is well worth your while.
Luckily the two have collaborated on a website where many of his photographs can be seen. Check them out at www.charlottesvillethenandnow.com.
You will see images from the late 1940s through the late 1970s including some rare color photographs of Vinegar Hill (before the infamous mid-60s urban renewal project), Downtown Charlottesville before the construction of the Pedestrian Mall, and many of the famous people that have come through Charlottesville, from Harry Truman to Elizabeth Taylor to the king of all, Sir Duke Ellington.
