History Lecture: Spencer Stereoviews
Date/Time: Mon Nov 27, 2017 at 4 PM (1 hr)
Join Josh Liller, Historian for the Loxahatchee River Historical Society at this free lecture to be held at the North Palm Beach Public Library, 303 Anchorage Drive, North Palm Beach, FL 33408. Melville Spencer was an early pioneer resident of the Lake Worth area who took up photography while assistant keeper of the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse, usually selling his photos as stereoviews.
Spencer’s stereoviews might be the only photos of the Jupiter and Lake Worth areas taken prior to 1890. These rare images depict the lighthouse, Seminoles, pioneer residents, early homes and agriculture, and wilderness scenes that would be unrecognizable to many modern residents of the area. Learn about Spencer and his lesser known predecessor, Fred Whitehead, and see many examples of their work.
