Friday afternoon begins with the annual Wallace Nutting auction; the preview begins at noon and the auction commences at 2 p.m. This year’s auction, which is open to the public, offers more than 500 Wallace Nutting photos, books and furniture, as well as other early 20th century hand-colored photos by other artists, such as Charles Sawyer, Fred Thompson, David Davidson and more.

Saturday’s agenda is equally important, beginning with a sale/trade/exhibit at 8 a.m. Club members set up at tables and bring their most unusual photo and furniture pieces to sell or trade; there will be hundreds of items for sale.

The sale is followed by the annual club meeting and several presentations by club members and a show and tell, which is immediately followed by a trip to Valley Forge Historic National Park and a tour focusing on areas that Wallace Nutting photographed. The annual club dinner will be held at the hotel that evening.
