|"The Way We Worked"|
Johnson City Public Library, Johnson City, TN
The Johnson City (TN) Public Library is currently hosting "The Way We Worked", a traveling exhibit developed by the Smithsonian Institute as part of their Museum on Main Street program. We are able to have the exhibit available locally through the sponsorship of the Tennessee Humanities Council. It was a fascinating exhibit to view, one I hope will be in your area someday.
Seeing "The Way We Worked" has also led me to look back at the variety of occupations about which I have written in some previous blogs. These include:
Gold Miner Samuel Hillhouse
Homesteader Peter Petersen Myren
Land Agent Thomas Smiley
Minister Albert Bell Vaughan
Musician Gertrude Andrews Myren
Painter Hans Syversen
Surveyor Ernest Perkinson
Tax Collector (and Singing Teacher) Elijah Hillhouse
Teachers Charlotte Vaughan and her sister Louise Vaughan
Tufted Spreadmaker Nelson relatives
And finally, the post about the Citizens of Wildcat Cherokee County, Georgia
Over the next few weeks, I'll be sharing some photos of other relatives at work.
