The image has always been important in advertising, and it was no different for our ancestors in Colonial and early Federal America. Newtown Historical Society will look at a particular form of advertising, the tavern sign, with a look at Connecticut Historical Society’s collection of such signs, in the community room of C.H. Booth Library.
The presentation, “Tavern Signs: Art and Advertising in Early America,” by Richard Malley, will be offered on Monday, September 9, beginning at 7:30 pm.
