Little girl's 1930s dress

Museum volunteer Rosemary Shaheen did a fantastic job helping me prepare for the Keller Gallery exhibit A Secret Gift.  She sifted through the entire collection of photos in the library, looking for anything that was dated in the 1930s.

Her work is most apparent in a large banner in the exhibit titled "Sam Stone's Canton," shown here:

But there is a more personal part of Rosemary in the exhibit too... 

She loaned us this adorable dress, which was made in the 1930s from a sash from one of her mother's dress, presumably to save money.  And today, she brought us a photo of her wearing it as an adorable little girl!

Thank you, Rosemary!
