Progress on the tourism booklet grant project

The primary sources: tourism booklets from the various electric railway companies in Maine
Good progress is being made on the "Preserving the Primary Sources of Maine’s Early Tourism" grant project.  This project is being generously supported by the Maine State Archives and the Maine Historical Records Advisory Board.  We've purchased supplies and have begun rehousing the booklets and pamphlets in their new archival enclosures. Once everything is safely preserved, we'll be entering the data into PastPerfect.

Enclosed in their archival sleeves.
We will probably add archival quality labels on the outside of each for quick identification
The project has been a great deal of fun because we get to have a real look at some of the amazing treasures that the museum is protecting.

All tidy in their boxes!
