Event description

Description

This show commemorates history through an immersive experience, with images and artifacts from Billy Bishop's and William Barker's time. See 1920's Kingston from the air and from its streets, historic military decoration and jive to music of the period while you enjoy your complimentary beverage. Join Kingston Frameworks as We Remember 100 Years of Kingston through the photography of Billy Bishop, William Barker and Jay Bridges.

Kingston Frameworks has partnered with CFB Kingston and will be sponsoring the MVP+ (Military Veteran Program) a Health and Wellness Program specifically designed for Military Veterans. We chose to integrate our sponsorship into this event as we are about to enter Veteran’s Week - a time when many Canadians will remember and honour those who have served our country as well as those who wear the uniform today. One of these great Veterans we honour is none other than William Avery Bishop otherwise known as Billy Bishop.

In 1919, Billy Bishop & William Barker, WWI pilots extraordinaire flew their famous plane all over, capturing Kingston and beyond as it was then through the lens of a camera.

Jay Bridges, renowned Kingston-based traveling photographer, has captured Kingston through the lens of his drone camera, recreating and adding to the archived images of Billy Bishop and William Barker. His new images will be unveiled for the first time to show Kingston in 2019, compared to Kingston in 1919.

Refreshments and a beverage will be served with your ticket cost.

Dress code is smart casual for the evening.

Doors open at 1630 hrs (4:30 pm), and ceremonies will be held at 1715 hrs (5:15 pm) to commemorate the work.

Please join us to celebrate, commemorate our past, present and future.
