My Last Task

Today is the first day of the Belmar and the Railroad show, but I had one last thing I was responsible for.  I brought the two frames of historical stuff to the Boatworks a little before noon and put them up.   Didn't take long- just tried them on the two hook wires already in place, adjusted the hook heights, coiled up the extra wire, a staple into each to hold the wire better to the wall, and then pictures on the hooks.  The pair is shown above.  That they are not level with each other is because that little section of wall is next to the ramp that connects the front and back rooms, so each is at the same height from the place where a viewer will stand in front of it.

While I was still there Rebecca printed out the title cards we put by each piece, and we stuck them to the wall in the appropriate places.  The only thing still missing is the big reproduction of the train station mural planned for the back wall, but that's delayed by a printer issue.  At 1:00 pm we turned on the lights, put our the sandwich board sign and flag, and officially opened the show.  Within 15 minutes we had our first visitors, and then more, and more.  A total of 8 people while I was still there, a very good number for early on a weekday afternoon.  At least one family group said it was because they saw the banner at the train station, It will be interesting to see how this plays out over the next few weeks.
