You can see die cuts, Gurley candles, Easter books, and Easter baskets with candy from the period.
Check out the museum at www.parkforesthistory.org. If you can't come, there are some Easter photos posted n the site.
The Museum is open Saturdays from 1-3 p.m. Donation is $5 for adults; children 12 and under are free with a paying adult.
Thank you for this Group Topic. I wish I was visiting your area, to see this wonderful Museum and view their exhibits. I have distinct memories of Easter and watching the Easter Parade on TV.
I would especially look for all those outrageous hats being worn by women, walking along Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, and then the cameras would flash back to people walking on the Boardwalk in Atlantic City!
I also remember my parents buying me a new Easter outfit for Easter, and I wasn't even Christian, but my parents were open minded and we celebrated ALL holidays!
Even at Christmas time and Chanukah, as a little girl, we would have a real pine Christmas tree, which smelled so wonderful, and a Chanukah Menorah. My parents didn't want me to miss the spirit of these wonderful holidays!
By the way, I viewed your profile and you have a wonderful collection. In fact we probably have much in common, because I have Dolls on every table.
Then too, I have paintings on every wall. I just need more wall and table space. If so, I'd definitely add more, except mine aren't valuable at all. I just buy dolls for my own enjoyment. Shelby
