Hudson in Brooklyn

An enlargement of this colorized post card image showing a fire drill at the New York State Training School for Girls hangs in two places right now--two places about 130 miles apart.

One is in the post card exhibition Wish You Were Here in the Community Room at the Hudson Area Library. The other is in the lobby of the federal court building in Brooklyn, where there is an exhibition about the New York State Training School for Girls called Bearing Witness: Incorrigible Girls of New York. The exhibition, which runs through January 11, was the subject of an article yesterday in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle: "Federal Court Gallery in Brooklyn tells the history of incarcerated girls in New York."

Thanks to Michael Susi for bringing this to our attention.

  1. Didn't our local kids, under the direction of Gail Wheeler (Hudson High) give a wonderful presentation at our library a couple years ago? And wasn't it called Bearing Witness?
