Obscura Day 2012 at the Dittrick Museum will feature an authentic period magic lantern show by John Davidson, an avid collector of scientific antiques and longtime friend of the Dittrick. Dittrick's archivist Jenny Nieves will be presenting a display of seldom-seen World War I medical photographs documenting Cleveland’s Lakeside Unit serving in France, and a Dittrick volunteer Jim Vendeland will showcase the Dittrick’s superb spectacle and eyeglass collection that is not normally on public view. We'll also be hosting a wine and cheese reception for Obscura Day.
