Since this particular type of exhibit has not, omy knowledge, been attempted before, the sources for assemblance of pertinent objects to this exhibition were not generally known.

Further correspondence on my part led to selection of available pieces and also gave me information as to the whereabouts of many important objects in private collections. We are especially pleased to be able topublish a permanent record of all the objects shown in the exhibition thereby possibly formulating a segment of the history of the area which may never again be publicly shown.
