On Thursday, August 19, 2004 at 7 p.m. the Hull Lifesaving Museum, located at 1117 Nantasket Avenue, Hull, will hold our Annual Meeting. Following the election of the museum’s Board of Directors, we will welcome Lorna Condon, Curator of Library and Archives at Historic New England.

Historic New England: William Sumner Appleton founded SPNEA, now known as Historic New England, in 1910 for "the purpose of preserving for posterity buildings, places and objects of historical and other interest."

The Library and Archives is one of Historic New England's greatest resources. Every year hundreds of researchers come to the Library and Archives to study the more than one million items that document New England's architectural and cultural history. The archival collections include photographs, prints and engravings, architectural drawings, books, manuscripts, and ephemera.

In abundance and variety, photographs outrank all other forms of information. The more than 300,000 images are arranged by specific medium, including extensive collections of dagu erreotypes, ambrotyp es, cartes de visite, stereographic views, albums, postcards, and standard prints. They record bui ldings, domestic interiors, commercial interiors, streetscapes, landscapes, people at work, people relaxing and at play, and modes of transportation. Many of New England's leading 19th- and early 20th-century photographers are represented.

The Hull Lifesaving Museum’s current exhibition, The Camera’s Coast, is a travel ing exhibition representing more than seventy maritime photographs from the Historic New England archives.

The Annual Meeting is open to members of the Hull Lifesaving Museum and their guests. New members are welcome to join at the Annual Meeting. Membership dues are $25 for individuals and $40 for families.

Light refreshments will be served and The Camera’s Coast will be open for viewing. For more information please contact Corinne Leung at 781-925-5433.
