Youngsters learn of Warren’s heyday

Posted

About 45 Hugh Cole students got a personal history lesson Wednesday, when they visited the Imago Gallery on Market Street for “Warren: A Point of View.” The exhibit continues through December and combines recorded interviews with nine Warren residents who grew up in town during the 1940s and ‘50s. It also includes photographs, artifacts and interpretive aspects. The interviewees range from dairy farm owners to models to police officers; above, they’re listening to Pat Read tell tales from her youth. For more information on the exhibit, see Imago's website, or that of the Warren Preservation Society.
