June 7, 2011 (El Cajon) -- Vintage objects from the archives of the El Cajon Historical Society not being used in the Knox House Museum or in public exhibits are being released for sale. This collection of post-Civil War through 1960s artifacts is available at Lynn Endicott’s Silvercreek Fine Arts Gallery at 120 East Main Street in El Cajon’s newly renovated redevelopment area for one month, beginning at 10 a.m. on June 17th.

 

Among the artifacts are women’s hats from the 1920s and 1950s, some packets of rare laces, crocheted items, books; a 1930s Bakelite clock; tourist items and a five-drawer, brass and wood boxed Mah Jong set from post-war Japan and baby clothes.

 

Monies received are needed to support the Historical Society’s valley-wide Third Grade Essay contest and the digitization of historical photos and records dating back to the mid-1800s. Some of this one-of-a-kind historical material is already available to the public on the Society’s web page at www.elcajonhistory.org.
