My week was cut short because I was ill for numerous days. I am well and ready to get back into my research. I miss the dedication of the stamp that occurred yesterday, but I heard it was a successful event and that everyone loved it.
I am proud to announce my first pin has been pinned on HistoryPin. It is a picture of the inside of the Pleasure Beach Ballroom. It was a tedious yet fun experience. There were a lot of little details to figure out, but the research was quite awesome and I learned more about the Ballroom, then I would if I didn’t research it and just described the picture. All the pictures and postcards I have collected will be up there soon and filled with information on what Bridgeport used to be like and how it is today. Some of the changes are the same in structure and some of the changes one may be astonished.
Now you’re probably wondering what my pet artifact is. Well it’s the miniature circus. Ever since I was a kid and would visit the Museum, the first thing I would talk about is the circus. I knew exactly where it was and I always seem to find something new with it when I saw it. It was like an antique to me. I would make up stories that I thought was happening when I would visit it. Today, it is still my favorite artifact. It gives life when everything is put together and it speaks different stories whenever interpreted by different people. I can’t wait to get started with the mini circus. Hopefully I will find something interesting to tell you all.
Until next time, Happy Birthday Barnum (Saturday, July 5th). How does it feel to be 204 years old?
