In days gone by, getting your portrait taken by a photographer was a big event and called for turning out in a very special outfit. A group of unidentified glass plate negatives of local Warwick residents was donated in recent years by Duane Joslyn to the Warwick Historical Society. A selection of these negatives has been scanned and an exhibit created on the Hudson River Heritage website by volunteer Dianne Aimone and costume historian Mimi Sherman. This is a joint program of the Albert Wisner Public Library and the Historical Society of the Town of Warwick.
