Deo offers presentation
ISHPEMING — Jack Deo of Views of the Past will present a program, Historic Ishpeming: A Photographic Tour, in the Children’s Room of the Ishpeming Carnegie Public Library at 1:30 p.m. Saturday.
The Friends of the Library contacted Deo about doing this program to help celebrate Ishpeming’s 150 years as a city.
Deo’s historical photographic collection began with the acquisition of the original negatives from the famous Childs Art Gallery of Ishpeming. This studio was founded in the 1860s by Brainard F. Childs, the premier photo artist of the Upper Peninsula. His stereoscopic series, The Gems of Lake Superior, captured the beauty and history of the Lake Superior Region. For three generations this historic studio captured every aspect of life in the North country
Light refreshments will be served after the program.
