Daily Life in the Early Days: Guest Speaker: Bob Wood
Lay Leader: Allan Pallay
Writer, artist retired English teacher and local historian Bob Wood will speak about the fabric of daily life in the 18th century Pottstown area. How did early Germanic immigrants live, and in a fundamentally “unmediated world,” what was their world view? Can we even understand their personal mindset, couched as we are in our media saturated world? He will also touch on food, clothing, and shelter in the very early days.
