Picture This: Virginia in the Twentieth Century

  • Bay Lake Community (map)

New and rapidly developing technologies allowed the twentieth century to be more visually documented than any previous era. Movies, photography, and new printing methods recorded the sweeping changes that occurred as people moved from the countryside to cities and as the Industrial Revolution came to dominate the new rhythms of life. Join us as we explore themes of urbanization, social change, and politics represented by the photograph, manuscript, and museum collections of the Virginia Museum of History & Culture.
