Moving the Archives – Day Seven

When I last posted about the archives, we were still working on the first side. As of yesterday (Saturday) morning before we started working, we had the first side filled:

the second side (to the left) and the third side (to the right) filled:

DSCN0318

and we had to stop on Friday night because we needed to break down more shelves to build a third row, then add another bay on the end of the second row. Which we accomplished, and have filled the new bay and have the fourth side about half full.    I’ll take photos next time I go to work.

It was slow going this morning, because we had to move many boxes of  glass plate negatives and glass lantern slides.  Do. You. Know. How. Heavy. These. Are. Grouped. Together. In. A. Box???   Two of my male volunteers both work out at the gym and they were both having a hard time.

We have really worked our hinies off (only figuratively, unfortunately)! And I am happy it is my “weekend” for sure!

    Well my God you’ve been busy! Be careful lifting those heavy items, Pam. I liked the “telephone man” joke :o)

    Can I presume this is the historical association?

    Anyone ever come in researching diners?
