Best Threads: Fashions of Warwick, circa 1900 - Web Exhibit Opening & Discussion with Mimi Sherman

Date: 
Sun, 03/13/2011 - 2:00pm - 3:30pm
Age Group: 
Adult
Teens

In days gone by, getting your portrait taken by a photographer was a big event and called for turning out in a very special outfit.  A group of unidentified glass plate negatives of local Warwick residents was donated in recent years by Duane Joslyn to the Warwick Historical Society.  A selection of these negatives has been scanned and an exhibit created on the Hudson River Heritage website by volunteer Dianne Aimone and costume historian Mimi Sherman.  This is a joint program of the Albert Wisner Public Library and the Historical Society of the Town of Warwick.
