The Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives will continue its Brown Bag Lunch series at noon, Wednesday, March 11, at the archives, 17 W. Quartz St. Montana author Doug Ammons will present “Dynamic Butte in Time Lapse," part of a project he has been working on for several years to retell Montana history, and Butte in particular, in a novel way.
Ammons uses historical photos from the 1870s to the 1920s to create detailed time lapse videos that bring parts of the city back to life. Starting with several striking videos across Montana, Ammons focuses on Butte scenes, around the mines, businesses and neighborhoods, as the ramshackle small town grew into an industrial city like no other. The show is guaranteed to be eye-opening, as well as bring laughs, cheers, and tears for the amazing vitality of Butte’s past, according to a press release.
Ammons is the author of the book “A Darkness Lit by Heroes,” a detailed account of the 1917 Granite Mountain Mine fire. He is a frequent contributor to the Brown Bag Lunch series.
Guests are encouraged to bring a sack lunch. Coffee and water will be provided. For details, call 406-782-3280.
