Exhibit – Left New York June 21st 1924

“Left New York June 21st 1924”

A cigar box holding postcards and notes found in a garage in Orlando found its way to Lowell. In the cigar box, bare bones hint at the story of a young man traveling across the U.S. 90 years ago. Lots of questions to be answered . . . Who was the young man? What was our country like 90 years ago? Western Avenue Lofts artist Maxine Farkas invites patrons of the Chelmsford Public Library to join her in putting together a narrative about this journey.

This exhibit will run throughout the month of April at the Chelmsford Public Library
