PIQUA OLD FASHIONED DAYS 1956-1959

– THREE DIMENSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHIC SLIDE COLLECTION

 

INTRODUCTION

 

The Piqua Old Fashioned Days 1956-1959 – Three Dimensional Photographic Slide Collection was accessioned into the Piqua Public Library Archives and Special Collections on March 8, 2016 as a result of a donation from the Edith Thoma Estate.   The collection is housed in a Gaylord metal edge 11 ½ x 15 x 3 box.  The collection consists of 65 three dimensional slides which were taken in the 1950’s with a Kodak twin lens three dimensional camera.  In the box are 65 files each containing a single two picture slide.  Also in the box are 65 scanned copies of the slides on 8 ½ x 11 paper.  The copies are marked with the corresponding file numbers of the slide files.

 

Old Fashioned Days was a celebration and festival with parade put on by the downtown merchants of Piqua, Ohio.  Its purpose was to commemorate Piqua’s early history and to bring visitors and residents to downtown Piqua. 

 

The processing of the collection was completed by Gary Meek in May 2016.  The ownership of the collection has been deeded to the Piqua Public Library and is available for viewing by library patrons.  There are no known restrictions on the use of these materials.
