At last, a picture of the windows on #56 as originally built for B&SR.  Query, were they just openings, or was there glass behind the shutters?

Volunteers / WMTW Visits the WW&F July 2nd
« Last post by Stephen Piwowarski on June 25, 2022, 11:58:20 PM »
Hi All,

I wanted to give everyone a heads up that WMTW, the Portland ABC affiliate, will be visiting the Museum Saturday July 2nd from 5 AM to 8AM. The format is to carry out 5-6 short, live interviews which are interspersed between the morning news segments. They are interested in getting interviews with our volunteers, showing the projects we have going on, what we are up to, etc.

This is great, 4th of July weekend coverage for us, and with lots of great things happening at the Museum, it should be a great piece for us. If you plan on being around, maybe give me a heads up so I can confirm that we will actually have enough people on site in the 5-8 window to help them accomplish their goals.

Best,
Steve
