Developing Richmond: Photographs from the Cook Studio

April 24 @ 10:00 am - November 10 @ 5:00 pm

| $10

When photographer George S. Cook relocated with his family to Richmond in 1880, he arrived in a city caught between the old and the new: Richmond bustled with post-Civil War construction and economic enterprise even while it held onto the antebellum social and political order.

Acquired by the Valentine Museum in 1954, the Cook Studio’s more than 10,000 negatives and prints visually document Richmond at the turn of the 20th century. Experience imagery taken by George and his son Huestis Cook of this conflicted and changing city.
