Another part of the “Collecting Wilmington: Place, Perspective & Memory” exhibition is now on display.
The exhibition features the sprawling collection of Paul Preston Davis - a retired Delmarva Power executive who spent over four decades gathering Wilmington-centric items -- everything from rare business trade cards, photography and African Americana to rare print materials, and commemorative objects.
“Collecting Wilmington” is rolling out in 5 parts. This week, the third piece was unveiled – featuring sheet music in the collection. We talk to Delaware Historical Society Chief Curator Leigh Rifenburg to learn more about it.
