---- — Group extends photo exhibit

The Delaware County Historical Association will extend an exhibition of local photojournalist Bob Wyer’s work through the end February rather than closing at the end of January.

During his career — which ran from the later 1930s into the 1970s — Wyer photographed both the relatively mundane and the sensational, a media release said.

The DCHA is two miles north on Delhi on state Highway 10. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. For more details, call 746-3849 or go to
