Historic Photo Day

La Mesa Historical Society

Saturday, September 13th from 1 - 4 pm

Photographer developing a photo

In collaboration with the La Mesa Historical Society, the Grossmont College Photography Program presents hourly tintype demonstrations by Dave Smith and Nick Hidek who will be recreating classical turn of the century portraits of students dressed in vintage period clothing while using the McKinney Museum House as a backdrop. Visit for directions.

The house will be open for self-guided tours and from the archives of the La Mesa Historical Society, representational photographic works from all epochs, genres and processes will be on display. LMHS Board Members, docents and GC faculty will be available to answer questions about the photographs and their importance in our social and cultural history.

This event is free for students, staff and faculty, LMHS members and the general public.
