On Display

Two new items have been placed on display.

The first is Mack Ross' group of six sketches of historic Stratford buildings. We have them, and two earlier oils, out in conjunction with our mapping of the town's buildings.


The other is this overcoat, donated relatively recently by Beth Ripper:


This overcoat was made by Beth's mother, then Betty Taylor, in the 1940s. It was made from a blue blanket, as clothing was in short supply, as were coupons for them or fabric. It was worn by her mother, then Beth, and then Beth's daughter, before being donated.

As with all our clothing/textiles, it will be on display for about a month, then returned to store.
