Hello to all the former readers of my “Memories” column! I’ve just had a letter from a former reader who would like to find a video of the locally famous Plum Nelly Clothesline Art Show from several decades back.
The lady’s grandmother was a friend of Miss Fanny Mennen, the show’s Founder, and they went together to see it several times.
Unable to find such a video on YouTube, I have been asked to assist in locating one. Plum Nelly ended long before the Internet existed, and any modern video of the show would have to have been transferred from movie film.
Maybe your Aunt Bess or Uncle George made a home movie of it and it is lying in someone’s attic. You would be adding to our region’s history if you could dredge it out and get it made over into a video format! Let’s hope!
