Then and now aerial photographs of Guinea’s changing landscape will be shown at 6 p.m. next Friday, Jan. 27, in the Buck’s Store Museum, Bena.The program is presented by the Guinea Heritage Association as its January Fourth Friday program.
David and Linda Grow, who have been flying over Gloucester for many years, and taking photographs of the landscape, have recently revisited areas captured between 1950 and 1970 by the late Gazette-Journal photographer Walter Becknell. Becknell specialized in aerial photography and left an extensive record of the mid-century appearance of Gloucester and Mathews counties.
The Grows will compare the photos of yesterday and today during the program.
A news release said these photos will highlight the changes in the seafood industry, the environment, flood zones, and real estate—among other changes.
The program is free and open to the public and will be followed by time for questions and light refreshments.
