Pam travelled all the way from Atlantic City to see and hear our lecure.  She also brought some awesome items for "Show-&-Tell."  We're hoping she turns out to be our "groupie" following us around the state!  Mom, Kay Ingram (right) doubles as my assistant.

A History of Millinery, Antique Purses and Footwear, at Verreeville Historical Society in Philadelphia just may have been our biggest audience yet!  With over 100 in attendance, we really had to work the room!  The facility at Holy Redeemer Lafayette was beautiful and staff were accommodating. Enjoy the photos!

Celebrates Women's History

 

The warm, spring-like afternoon greeted my partner and I as we arrived in the quaint, historic town of Jenkintown.  Folks were lazily strolling down "Main" Street, not in much of a hurry to be anywhere except out enjoying a pleasant break in the weather.  The Library itself sat back a bit from the street with it's towering columns and welcoming atmosphere.

 

-  A vital link to the town's history, Jenkintown Library was founded in 1803.
