Dusty Closet Time Machine
During our recent carpeting replacement project at the Downtown Library we discovered oodles of interesting stuff in the deep darkness of our dusty closets. We set aside all of the City and Library historical artifacts, as well as some fascinating objects. Now the Library’s Assistant Director, Vanessa Christman, is slowly chronicling all of the things we found that might be of interest to our community. We’re using Tumblr for this project.
One of the first posts is a photograph of the upstairs of the Downtown Library as it existed in 1962 (above). The photo was undated but Vanessa was able to enhance the image to identify the Fortune Magazine on the table and then search their archives for the date.
