Art Shop Collection
The Art Shop was established by Charles Farrell in Greensboro in 1923, and his wife, Anne, joined the business in 1935. The couple were both talented photographers, and over the next 25 years they captured many people, places and events in Greensboro and across North Carolina. Many of the latter images can be found in the Charles A. Farrell Photograph Collection at the North Carolina State Archives.
The Art Shop Collection held at the Greensboro Historical Museum consists of several thousand negatives and over 1500 contact prints. It includes numerous images of local schools and businesses, as well as copy work and some street scenes. The bulk of the images available here show the campuses and students of the five local colleges and universities. Additional images show downtown landmarks, elementary and secondary schools, and textile mills, particularly Blue Bell and Mock, Judson, Voehringer.
