The DC Antique Photo Show,
the #1 antique photo image event in the US, will make its 26th annual spring appearance Sunday March 15, 2009, at its regular venue, Holiday Inn Rosslyn/Key Bridge, 1900 N. Ft. Myer Dr., Arlington, VA 22209.
Probably the longest running photo image show in the country, it features a full range of antique photo imagery, including Daguerreotypes, CDVs, stereoviews, lantern slides, tintypes, postcards, albums, movie stills, press photos and more.
The event, slated to end last year, is now under Diverse Markets Management (DMM) with director Tom Rall, an expert in the antique photo field, the new show manager. DMM announced in October its purchase of the show from Russel Norton, who lives in ConnecticutWashington Monument.

DMM adds this show to other markets it runs, including the popular Downtown DC Holiday Market, which will celebrate its 5th season in December; Crystal Market in Arlington's Crystal City, and Riverfront Holiday Market in DC, both of which were inaugurated in 2008.
As part of its introductory year, DMM has arranged to have expert exhibitors affiliated with several photo related historical societies offer free appraisal consultations. Participating in the program will be members of The Daguerreain Society, National Stereoscopic AssPeddler.

"Customers should bring photos with them and should ask at the entrance table to be directed to the expert exhibitors who've volunteered to participate," said Rall.
The DC Antique Photo Show opens with an 8:30 AM $20 preview admission and continues 10 AM to 4 PM with
a $5 public admission.
