"How to Shop Local - The Early 20th Century Way" With Cranford Historical Costume Curator Gail Alterman The Cranford Historical Society presents “How to Shop Local—The Early 20th Century Way” with Cranford Historical Society Costume Curator Gail Alterman on Wednesday, May 17th, 2017 at the Cranford Community Center, 224 Walnut Avenue, Cranford. Program will begin at 7:00pm. Ms. Alterman’s program will focus on the way people shopped - locally - one hundred years ago. What stores and products were available in Cranford and the surrounding area? Where did people shop? By looking at ads from the Cranford Chronicle and other archival sources, we will see how people shopped and what they bought in an age where shopping was done locally and where a trip to a large department store was an excursion. Gail Alterman has a Master’s Degree in Costume History and Design from New York University in conjunction with the Metropolitan Museum of Art. She has been a consultant for various historical societies regarding care and storage of costume and textile collections. This presentation is co-sponsored by the Cranford Historical Society and the Cranford Public Library.
