A Peek at the Farmington Souvenir Ceramic Collection of Farmington Resident Norma Park-Part 1


A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to visit longtime local resident Norma Park and take a look at the items she had chosen to collect over the years. Norma has many special and unusual items in her collection, as well as the ordinary, but I specifically visited her to see her collection of Farmington, New Hampshire souvenir ceramics. The were ceramic plates, dishes, etc. produced as souvenir trinkets for travelers coming through our town and were sold by several of our department stores in the last portion of the 19th century. I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I did. Thank you Norma for letting everyone have a chance to see them.
