Images on the Blog

December 10, 2010

Good work on the images, if a little “last minute.” Remember that all these entries must have citations, unless you took them yourself and do not want anyone to know. This is a history methods blog, after all. And, when you can, title your blog entry.
But good work.

Final Presentation and Final Paper

December 7, 2010

Just a confirmation that the final presentation of your project will be at the Cumberland County Historical Society on December 16, 2010 starting at 2 p.m.

Only one person has asked me about the eight page final paper that is due on December 18, 2010, according to the course outline.  I suppose that those are all written and therefore nothing to worry about.

I was thinking of leaving this post up overnight as it is but that would be cruel.  Not that cruel is a problem with me but fairness is. So, here is what I am requiring for a final piece of writing in History 304, to be due on the 18th at noon.  Since the presentation has emerged as the main focus of the final days, you will no longer be required to write a long paper, either as a group or individually.  Instead, you will hand in no shorter than two full pages and no more than three pages of well-written and concise personal reflection on the project and the work you have been doing in the past months – what you set out to do, how thinking evolved, what historical methods you employed, how this project related or did not relate to our historiography work and our study of Tosh’s ideas, what you felt you achieved, and most importantly what you were able to learn about the historical method with this project. These will be individual reflections, not coordinated with other members of your group.

We can talk more about this if need be tomorrow.  Additions (and deletions) of buildings are closing in class tomorrow and a very soon deadline will be set for completed spreadsheets.

Good luck.  See you tomorrow.

And respond.

Market Block images

Just a couple and a bit dark, taken Wednesday evening on East High. (Will probably need better ones for any use in final project)
I stopped in to Mrs Stamm’s on the block and the owner is very interested in the project. The 1896 says there was a barbershop where he cooks chicken now.

Walking to a meeting with House Divided this fine morning.


Class

November 9, 2010

Please spread the word that I will most probably be late on Wednesday. You can come on time to meet and argue about which structures were there in 1860 till I get there. Or you can come at two o’clock.  See you tomorrow!

Sanborn Map 1896 — Bank Block

October 18, 2010

Again, please note that the Bank and Theater Blocks are composites that do not quite fit together.  You may notice and need to take into account the joins.

Sanborn Map 1896 — Theater Block

October 17, 2010

Notice something about the block that one of your number insisted on nicknaming “Theater Block”?
No theater…
A case of “present-day thinking” gone sadly wrong?

Thanks to the Cumberland County Historical Society, we have a cleaner and older Sanborn Fire Insurance Map for Carlisle.  I am posting them as I prepare them.  Click on image for full size.  Market Block first.
