17 August 2014
Today was a good day. An ordinary one, but a good one. .
Today three years ago was a good day too. But a whole lot less ordinary.
Still so thankful for the best yes I’ve ever heard and for everybody who made the Goleta Pier my favorite pop-up restaurant ever.
When you're spring cleaning in August and you find stuff from 1997 that isn't yours. Hey @gecollier, you been looking for this?? On a more serious note... has anyone seen my grey mizuno Canada t shirt? Last seen in 2003. #besttshirtever#amiright ? #archives#classic#throwback
So an archaeology professor-turned-globe-trotting-adventurer wearing a #fedora has just told you that a priceless treasure #BelongsInAMuseum . 🤠What next? To collection storage, of course! .
Brooklyn Historical Society’s collections include #books , #photographs , archival materials, #maps , #OralHistories , #FineArt , and #artifacts . Many of these materials are stored on-site, however, because of the size and needs of such a large and diverse collection, BHS has two additional off-site storage locations. In order to responsibly care for collections, the materials have to be stored in climate controlled environments that monitor temperature and humidity. That’s why if you make a research appointment at the library, we ask that you give us 24-48 hours to pull archival collections. . .
With that in mind, the #PhotoOfTheWeek is a peek into some of the Other Library’s collection storage from around 1980. How we store items on site has changed quite a bit since this photograph was taken, but our dedication to #collecting and #preserving#BrooklynHistory remains the same! . .
