In this special holiday version of Member Mondays, we will share five-minute show and tells featuring artifacts and photographs that relate to winter and the holidays. With Curator Cipperly Good, learn about the amazing insulating qualities of fisherman’s mittens, which get better the wetter they get! (Click here for a preview) Next, through a group of large format glass plates made in the early 20th century, PMM Digital Collections Curator Matt Wheeler will explore the wintry world of commercial logging in Maine at a time when all the hard work was done by people and horses. Special guest Executive Director Karen Smith will share examples of quilts from the PMM collection that capture the relationships and stories of their coastal communities. Finally, Photo Archivist Kevin Johnson will end the program sharing five of his favorite holiday photos from the archives.
