Seth Rolbein: Bringing History to the Streets

  • Wellfleet Public Library 35 West Main Street Wellfleet MA (map)

Sometimes it feels like time buries the past; resurrecting it can be a joyous, consciousness-changing celebration of who we are and where we've come from.  

And so on June 8, 7:30 pm, join Seth Rolbein and friends at the Wellfleet Public Library to explore one way that we might bring Welfleet's amazing past back to the surface, and into the present:  

Can we, should we, select some of the great archival photographs at the Historical Society and Museum, locate where the photographer took the image decades and generations ago, and find a way to mount and display these old photos at that very spot, along our modern streets and ways, so people can compare then and now?

We'll talk through the idea, whether it's feasible, explore strategies --- and of course take a look at some of the great old photos that could find their ways to our streets and become part of this new outreach.
