In Pasadena, The 2015 Daguerreian Society Symposium

Hilton PasadenaThe Daguerreian Society's annual symposium and 19th-century photo fair will be held November 5–8, 2015 at the Hilton in Pasadena, CA
This is a great opportunity to learn about 19th-century photography and engage with fellow collectors, dealers and curators. It's also an opportunity to buy some great images either at the Saturday photography tabletop show or during the silent and live auctions after Saturday night's banquet.

The program starts with a day trip planned on Thursday to the J. Paul Getty Museum to see a new show on daguerreotypes, culminating with an opening reception on Thursday evening.
Friday will have a full day of top presentations on various 19th-century photography areas.

On Saturday there will be an extensive photography fair from 10 am-4 pm. As one member put it, "It will be the largest number of daguerreotypes to hit California since the Gold Rush". Thousands of 19th-century images will be on display and for sale. We are actively seeking quality dealers of 19th century photography for the trade show. You do not have to be a member or a Symposium registrant to get into the photography fair, just $10, which you can pay at the entrance. Symposium registrants gain early admittance at 9 am.
A cocktail party with cash bar and dinner are scheduled for the evening, with an extensive auction of photography items (both in the silent and live auctions) to follow.

Sunday is a free day to take advantage of the Rose Bowl Flea Market. On Monday, Nov 9, participants are welcome at the Huntington Library & Gardens, which they can visit on their own. This facility comprises over 120 acres.
