From the Director
Today an RBHS docent and I visited the Poway Historical Society Museum. In a display case were examples of cups, saucers, and platters dating from the 1920s-40s appropriately called Depression Glass. In colors of pink, green, cobalt blue, amber and yellow, these pieces were on loan to the museum from private collections. In addition there was tableware from the Blue Willow period to the more modern Noritake. It was evident that great importance was placed on entertaining and the emphasis of beautiful table ware.
The Poway Museum also includes a replica turn of the century classroom, an exhibit about aprons ( That was my favorite!), the first Poway post office, a great selection of gifts and lots of Poway history. It's open on Saturday and Sunday for visitors.
The question that came to mind was: what are the items we collect and how would they best be displayed in a museum exhibit?
