Our Stories, our Stuff, our Somerville at the Somerville Museum


What have you got in your basement?

Yesterday I had the opportunity to see a fascinating exhibit of 79 artifacts at the Somerville Museum, all donated by Somerville residents. They have been organized by type of  object, as you can see from my photos, and an accompanying catalog provides context for each as well as the story behind it.

I couldn’t resist the photo at the top, which shows the Somerville High School class of 1918 in a panoramic view that I didn’t know was even possible 101 years ago.

The other photos are presented without explanation from me (though of course they’re in the catalog).
