LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Calling all shutterbugs who love Louisville and its unique history: University of Louisville Photographic Archives and Yelp Louisville are teaming up to present the first Picture Louisville Vintage Photo Scavenger Hunt Aug. 13.
Participants will be given 10 vintage photos taken in downtown Louisville. They’ll race to find where those spots are and snap a picture of the current location with the vintage photo proving they found it. They must post a picture from each of the selected spots to Instagram with the hashtag #PicLou. Every team or participant who finds all of the locations of the vintage photos will receive a prize pack. Special prizes also will be awarded to the person or team finishing first.
The event will kick off at 11 a.m. with light refreshments at the Cressman Center for Visual Arts, 100 E. Main St., and will take about two hours to complete.
“This is a fun way to show off some of the one-of-a-kind images Photographic Archives has in its vast collection,” said Carrie Daniels, director of Archives and Special Collections. “We have such a treasure-trove of photos, many of them local or regional, that the public can enjoy.”
Picture Louisville is free, but space is limited. To participate, register here by Aug. 8.
Yelp Louisville — the website, app and community group that connects people with local businesses — will also be on hand with fun giveaways for participants.
