The “Snapshots in Time” exhibit now at the Edmonds Historical Museum features “now and then” shots of familiar locations in town, as well as vintage cameras and photographic equipment.

Ever wonder how your favorite “Edmonds kind of place” looked 25, 50 or even 100 years ago? Take a walk through “Snapshots in Time,” the latest exhibit at the Edmonds Historical Museum, and you may just find out.

Created with the help of local photographer Bob Sears, the exhibit pulls together interesting photos from the Museum archives and compares them with present-day images taken by Sears from the original vantage points.

“I tried to honor the past by showing how vibrant the City of Edmonds remains today,” Sears says. “In all cases I tried to set up my camera exactly where the original photo was taken, but sometimes that was difficult so I got as close as I could.”

In addition to the photos, visitors will also see vintage cameras and camera paraphernalia, portraits of early Edmonds residents, and a timeline of interesting trivia from Edmonds’ past.

“Snapshots in Time” runs through Sunday, Aug. 2.
