Alas, back in 19th-century Hartford, no one was posting video clips of their lives on YouTube. But we do have the work of the Kellogg Brothers, who created prints that depicted the city's everyday life in detail.
The Connecticut Historical Society will wrap up its six-month exhibition of Kellogg prints on Saturday, July 17, with a panel discussion among Georgia B. Barnhill of the American Antiquarian Society, Donald H. Cresswell of the Philadelphia Print Shop, and collectors James Brust and John Zak.
The event begins at 3:30 p.m. at the CHS museum at 1 Elizabeth Street in Hartford. There's no charge beyond general admission to the museum, which is $6 for adults and $3 for seniors (65 and over), students (with valid college ID), and youth (ages 6-17). For more information, call (860) 236-5621 x209.
By the way, CHS has published a book of its Kellogg prints.
