Exhibit at Historical Society Good Enough to Eat!

It's been a while since I actually got to mount an exhibit, and thanks to the hammer I always carry in my trunk, and the work done earlier with the Delaware Historical Society, I got to hang up the pictures and captions on 2 of the panels in the current exhibit done by the Historical Society in cooperation with the Friends of The Furness Railroad District. Exhibit information on Frank Furness and his B& O Stations in Delaware and Maryland can be seen at  the Delaware Historical Society website.

This is the 100th anniversary of the death of Philadelphia architect, Frank Furness, and our Wilmington group The Friends of the Furness Railroad District, did this exhibit as part of the numerous events in the area to commemorate this anniversary (for a list of all the events, see website on Furness events).

Since you all could not be there this last Saturday when we hosted a walking tour of the Furness Railroad District, including his Wilmington Pennsylvania RR Station (including the antique men's waiting room, below, from 1908) and the B&O Water St. Station, as well as a walk up Market Street to the Historical Society, I'll share a few pictures with you.  One of my fun parts was getting a cake with a picture of the Water St. station scanned into the frosting. Tasty station!

The exhibit will be up through February, 2013 and museum hours are at the Historical Society website.

Carolyn,

I love old railway stations. We have so many beautiful ones here in Canada.

Fascinating post...

Jo-Anne--Canadian railway stations sound like a good idea for a field trip!
