Col. Thomas Card was a freshman at Worcester Polytechnic Institute from 1916-1917. He didn’t finish his degree at WPI, but many years later, partly due to his love and fondness for the school, donated his large camera and photographic equipment collection to it in 1977.
My son and I went to a concert there, as detailed earlier in this blog. On the way back to the car, we found a postcard, featuring the location and times of the display. On our second week of vacation this summer, we had the pleasure of seeing the display. It is sheer nirvana for a vintage camera and film photography buff. Here are a few shots- taken with the Nikon N80, with a 50mm f/1.8D, wide open at f/1.8, no flash, and shot with TriX 400 at box speed, and developed in HC-110. Thrilled with the results. The display runs through September 14th. If you are in the area, make sure you visit WPI. Cannot recommend this exhibit enough-
