Three lucky visitors to the Way We Worked exhibitions in Allegany County Museums have won Kindle Fire tablets.
Kelly Sydow, Membership Chair of the Williams Museum in Westernport, drew the winning ‘time cards’ at a meeting of the Allegany County Heritage Committee.
Members of the Heritage Committee mounted exhibitions of aspects of industry and labor in Allegany County between 1877 and 2017. These included the importation of Spanish workers to the Luke Paper Mill, the glass industry in Cumberland, ‘downstairs’ work life, working for the WPA, and canal and coal workers.
Allegany Museum hosted the Smithsonian ‘The Way We Worked’ travelling exhibit, as well as providing displays relating to the development of railroad work from B&O to todays’ CSX, the workers’ struggle for their rights at the Celanese Corporation, and the history of local labor organizations. The Smithsonian exhibition has now moved on to Chestertown.
The three Kindle winners will be notified this week.
