Led by historian John Tschirch, this workshop includes a viewing of rare photograph albums, stereoscopic views and monographs featuring Newport's legendary landscapes. Since the development of the camera in the 1850s, photographers fell in love with Newport. Coastal views, gardens, specimen trees and scenic drives were all captured on film during the course of the 19th and early 20th centuries, forming a priceless record of the city's natural wonders.

The workshop is hosted by the Newport Arboretum and the Arboretum at Salve Regina.
