French Photography Pioneers, Auguste and Louis Lumiere, And Their Connection to Vermont's Queen City At The Turn Of The 20th Century presented by Hugo Martinez Cazon and sponsored by Lamoille Neighbors
April 4th at 4:00 pm at Morristown Centennial Library in person and on Zoom
As an environmental engineer, Hugo Martinez Cazon has always put together his love for history with his vocation. His Latin American background brings a different perspective to the work he's done researching Vermont's history. With a love for his adopted home, Hugo has been uncovering Vermont’s forgotten gems such as the first international ice hockey game played on Lake Champlain in Burlington in 1886, and the lost ravine that at one time was a branch of the Winooski River that flowed through what is now the city of Burlington into Lake Champlain. The presentation at Morristown Memorial Library will focus on the breakthrough inventions in photography by the Lumiere Brothers of Lyon, France and how they found a place in Burlington at the beginning of the 20th century.
