“Out of the Attic” is published each week in the Alexandria Times newspaper. The column began in 2007 as “Marking Time” and explored Alexandria’s history through collection items, historical images and architectural representations. Within the first year, it evolved into “Out of the Attic” and featured historical photographs of Alexandria. 

These articles appear with the permission of the Alexandria Times and were authored by Lance Mallamo, Director, and Amy Bertsch, former Public Information Officer, on behalf of the Office of Historic Alexandria.
