Photo Contest!

Then & Now



The fall display at the La Porte County Historical Society Museum this year will again be a photo contest, with trophies going to the winning submissions. This year will be a “Then & Now” theme. The Historical Society has a vast collection of photos, some going back to the 1800’s. It’s always interesting to see how the landscape has changed over the years, and a “Then & Now” display is always very popular. Come to the museum and pick out a photo. Then take the copy of that photo, try to find the place where it was originally taken, and then re-create the photo as it looks now. If you wish to use your own original photo, please make sure it was taken before 1980. Pick up an application and list of guidelines at the museum and submit your photo for the contest. All submissions will be displayed side-by-side with the original photograph.

  All photo submissions must be 8” X 10” and may be color or black and white. Please do not matte or frame them. All photos will become the property of the Historical Society. Please return copies of the originals with the submitted photos by Saturday, August26, before 4:30 PM. Most of all, have fun with this! But be careful when standing in the middle of the street.
