The Langley Main Street Association and Whidbey Island Center for the Arts present “Langley Life: 1890-1980” at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26 at Whidbey Island Center for the Arts, located at 565 Camano Ave. in Langley.

Jill Johnson, Gail Fleming and Bob Waterman created an original work that gives a first-hand look at Langley’s history through the eyes of Walter Hunziker, an early Langley resident, as well as his friends and family.

The production is presented by Whidbey Island Center for the Arts and the Langley Main Street Association; co-sponsored by the South Whidbey Historical Society and Langley Historic Preservation Commission.

The event also marks the opening of a photo exhibit at WICA featuring many never-before published historic pictures.

Waterman and Frances Wood will also be on hand to sell and sign their new book “Langley,” which is a collection of photos and stories ranging from Langley’s early days through the 1970s.

Tickets are available on the day of the show at the door. Suggested donation is $10 for adults, $5 for youths.

“Langley Life: 1890-1980” is one of the first events celebrating Langley’s Centennial in 2013. A full schedule of events is planned throughout the year.

For more information, contact Bob Waterman at 221-8644 or Langley Main Street Association at 360-929-9333 or mainstreet@whidbey.com.
