Frozen Frames: The Fényes-Curtin-Paloheimo Collection

Frozen Frames: Preserving Pasadena’s Visual Legacy is an exhibit series that unfolds in four parts, bringing artistically and historically compelling images out of the deep freeze and into public view.

The Pasadena Museum of History logo is a symbol that represents the home of the museum.

The images in this collection were selected from 1,500 nitrate negatives that document the life and interests of the Fényes Family matriarch, Mrs. Eva Scott Fényes (1849-1930), and carry the visual legacy of Pasadena from 125 years ago forward.
