DYK that many Currier & Ives' iconic holiday images were inspired by Currier’s time in Amesbury, where he kept a vacation home on Lions Mouth Road?

Thankyou, Joe Fahey, for the exceptional presentation (Bailey Family Lecture series by the Amesbury Carriage Museum) last night about renovating the Upper Millyard. Lots of humorous stories accompanied the slideshow. Who knew that Governor Dukakis' mother (standing next to him with a shovel at the ground-breaking ceremony) had started her teaching career in Amesbury? For years she kept asking him "How's that project coming along in Amesbury?" The "before" photographs of Amesbury were a stark reminder to the large audience of the former ugliness of the site and the years it took to complete. Money isn't enough. It takes vision, perseverance and collaboration skills of key people such as Joe, Nick Costello, and the selectmen (to name a few) to achieve the outstanding results we enjoy today in Upper Millyard and our downtown. Looking forward to completion of Carriage Museum projects and further development of the Lower Millyard!
Mike Harrold article on Timothy Palmer.
ACM research on Timothy Palmer, major covered bridge builder in New England and beyond, was mentioned. https://www.facebook.com/groups/28280126781/permalink/10156026536036782/
Lots of old carriages in Nashville.....
Beautiful Gray and Davis nickel-plated lamps (made in Amesbury!) spotted on a 1910 Atlas touring car at Springfield History Museum at the “quadrangle”. As the 1900’s evolved and the automobile quickly became the preferred means of transportation the carriage days quickly faded.... https://springfieldmuseums.org/
1901 News from “West Amesbury”. Bah humbug. That horseless carriage won’t replace the trusty steed any time soon.....
what an amazing organization for an amazing town! So glad to be number 700 to like your page.
Greg Jardis, the owner of Amesbury Industrial Supply, recently gave ACM approximately 2,300 square feet of space on the ground floor of his building located in The Millyard next door to Flatbread Company restaurant.
On October 27, I donated 175 books and addendums at cost of $3500 to the Carriage museum club for their fundraising. These books Numerous other items were also donated. As of this date nothing as been mentioned concerning this donation, Nor, has any word been published as other donations have. Amesbury's indusrial history is much larger than a brick or a nail.

On October 26", I donated 175 books of the Carriage Industry in Amesbury, plus several other items for their fundraising. These books cost me 3200 dollars to print and have over 200 pages of articles and advertisements from 1820-1918. As of this date, nothing has been mentioned about any of my donations to this club. Why?
We're coming for ya:)
