I have assembled various history topics displayed on poster sized boards. These posters can be transportable for viewing at exhibits such as at libraries etc.
I want to thank the following people for their help in gathering these photos: Bill Schlosser, Marvin Helmig, Mike Gleason, Dave Wozniak, and also Steve Shutt and Leo Muhlach.  I am trying to archive and organize these collections so they may be viewed by the public.  
There are many to thank for the many photos you see on this site. Let me know if you would like your name added if you see a photo from your collection.
