Antique or Modern – Preservation Cafe

Posted on March 4th, 2017 by Elizabeth Nelson

Is that transom over your door a 1890s treasure or a 1980s addition? Can’t tell your cast iron from your mild steel? And what color did people paint their houses in the 1920s, anyway? Learn more on Wednesday March 15, 6:30-8 p.m., at the Northeast Library, 330 7th St. NE. 

Architectural conservator Justine P Bello explains how to decode the vintage from the reproduction in a talk entitled:  “Antique or Modern: Identifying Original Architectural Details in Your Home.”

We’re trying out a new venue: the downstairs meeting room at the Northeast Branch Library, 330 7th Street, NE at 6:30 pm. Hope to see you there.

The venue is handicapped accessible and the public is encouraged to attend.

The Preservation Café series is a free forum with topics of interest to the greater Capitol Hill community.
