This is pretty cool. You’re invited to share your personal “toy stories” and be featured in an upcoming exhibit at the Detroit Historical Museum! But you must move fast if you’d like to take part.
The folks at the Detroit Historical Society are busy developing an exhibit that will open September 24th at the Detroit Historical Museum. It’s going to be called “Detroit Toy Stories” and they’d like to hear some stories from you!
If you still have a favorite Teddy bear, toy soldier, erector set or whatever, they’d love to exhibit those as well as hear your stories.
And there’s one more thing. The Society is also looking for your candid Detroit toy photos. Did your dad take a special shot of you riding a rocking horse when you were just a little shaver? Maybe your mom caught you playing with your new Barbie Doll like the photo the mother of WOMC’s Bobby Mitchell shot of him when he was 17. They’re interested in any pictures with kids and toys snapped prior to 1980.
If you’d like to share a story, they’ll need the following information about you:
- Your name
- Age at the time of the story
- Year the story took place
- The Metro Detroit community where you lived
Keep in mind that if you are submitting a picture, it must be at least 150 dpi. Please also include your name, address, phone number, and email address. And please identify each person and toy(s) in the photograph along with the year it was taken.
Please email your memories and images to Tracy Irwin, director of exhibitions at firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions can also be mailed in to this address:
Detroit Historical Society
5401 Woodward Avenue
Detroit MI 48202
This is very important. All photos must be received no later than this Friday to be considered for the exhibit. So get on it now!
