Wallace W. Abbey: A Life in Railroad Photography
Description: This exhibition, from the Center for Railroad Photography & Art, serves as a platform to present the life work of one of America’s most dynamic and lesser-known railroad photographers, Wallace W. Abbey. Abbey’s unique roles with trains and later the SOO Line as a photographer, journalist, historian, and railroad industry executive allowed him to capture often overlooked perspectives spanning primarily from the 1940s through the 1970s. He witnessed and photographed the sweeping changes in the railroad industry following the shift from steam to diesel locomotives, and showcased the transformation of transportation and photography after World War II. Abbey's work offers a full understanding of all aspects of railroading and delivers his visual ideas in an exciting presentation enjoyable to the railroading community and the general public alike.
Location: Naples Depot Museum
Dates: May 12- August 20
The opening reception on May 12th is a free event and open to the public. Drinks and hors d’oeuvres will be provided. RSVP is not required.
