On Thursday, October 13, the Marblehead Museum will present a talk by Dan Dixey, showcasing his historic Marblehead images focusing on people, parades and the waterfront. Dixey is an 11th generation Marbleheader who is well known for his extensive photo collection, knowledge of the town, and generous spirit. Dixey began collecting Marblehead memorabilia over 30 years ago. Dixey’s collection consists of books, photos, stereo views, cabinet cards, postcards, glass negatives, film negatives, slides and other written paper material. The lecture will show images of Marblehead from the past. The more than 100 photographs, the presentation will highlight various kinds of photo media from the 1860s through the 1960s. Dixey’s commentary will be the perfect accompaniment to this wonderful collection.
