Come hear the oral stories in accompaniment as part of this project by volunteers with help from the Everett Museum of History & Karen Ruth Foster Erickson.

Help in choosing the photograph that will be donated by the artist and the gallery to the Everett Museum of History’s archives. On the night of the Artist Reception 4 images have been selected for consideration, votes will be taken and tallied that evening. The Museum will be exhibiting eight photos to support the historical context of Gans unique perspective of urban renewal and change, and the human impact this creates.

This documentary style project presents black and white photographs that refer to different aspects and outcomes expected from gentrification in different urban areas, some abstract and some specific or know sites in downtown Everett.

 

Music and refreshments will be added to round out this wonderful evening of the Arts. A particular nod is given to Everett’s effort to preserve its historic building stock in the downtown core.

 

50th Anniversary National Preservation Act Event

Did you know that Everett native Senator Henry “Scoop” Jackson played a pivotal role in shaping the National Preservation Act and getting it approved by President Johnson?

To honor his role you are invited to join State Historic Preservation Officer Allyson Brooks and DAHP Staff at Preservation@50 on Saturday October 15, 2016 at the historic Everett Theatre in downtown Everett. The event is to observe and celebrate the 50th anniversary of the signing of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) by President Johnson on October 15, 1966.

Everett is the site of the event in recognition of the large role played by then Washington Senator Henry “Scoop” Jackson in shaping the legislation and seeing its passage through Congress to the President’s desk. Jackson was born and raised in Everett and his political life had a great influence on the city and state.

Doors for the event will open at noon on October 15 on Preservation@50 with light refreshments available. The program will start at 12:30 and end at 1:30. A guided walking tour of the Downtown Everett Historic District will follow after the program.

The Everett Theatre is located at 2911 Colby Avenue in Everett 98201:  http://www.historiceveretttheatre.org/

The event is free and open to the public. RSVP is requested.

Send questions and your RSVP to: Beverly.Ubias@dahp.wa.gov and include “Preservation@50” in the subject line and the number of persons attending.

And you can make it a full day of historic edutainment by attending the Everett Public Library’s Centennial Commemoration for the Everett Massacre afterwards. The Museum will be there, too! Details to follow.

Glass negatives 10 — more group photos

From a box of 4″x5″ glass negatives found in the museum collection, here’s some group photos from approximately 1894-1920 (probably towards the early part of that period, since glass negatives were rarely used that late).

The first one is curious, because it had a piece of paper glued on the back, with a hole in the shape of a star. Was this man someone’s sweetheart? We didn’t want to remove the paper, in order to keep the object as found. But there are more people in the photo, hidden by that piece of paper.

Glass negatives 8 — making a living

Another set of images from a box of glass negatives that the Monuments Men and Women uncovered, while cataloging the collection.  These include farming, logging, mining, a greenhouse, and the Cliff House in Monte Cristo where mining was the industry. The photos are approximately from 1894-1920 — probably from the earlier part of that time frame.
