East Side History Madison’s Blog

By and for the East Side History Club, a project of the Goodman Community Center

“Show and Tell” topic for March 21 2009 meeting

Posted by eastsidehistorymadison on March 4, 2009


Join us March 21 2009, 2-4pm at the Goodman Community Center, and show us your “stuff”!


 Bring your photos and mementos to share with other attendees. Meanwhile, club volunteers will scan or photograph items, for use in future programs and publications. An appraiser will be on hand to give informal value estimates, and historians to share insights about items’ significance. Refreshments will be served.

We want to see your “home-made history” – the artifacts that would otherwise not be preserved in the community’s newspapers and institutional records. These include:

  • scrapbooks
  • diaries
  • photos taken around the neighborhood
  • family portraits
  • civic event artifacts, especially of East Side Festivals
  • East Side business items
  • school trophies
  • athletic wear
  • play and dance programs
  • premiums and prizes
  • East Side factory artifacts such as time cards, uniforms, etc.

Write down information about the items you bring, such as names, dates and anecdotes.
