2017 Now & Then

Old Lyme Community Calendar

$16 including shipping

The popularity of last year's calendar has prompted us to create a new community calendar for 2017 that incorporates a different set of photographs from our archives, again juxtaposing the historical images with contemporary ones of the same scene. The images included in the calendar are a small sampling of the many interesting archived photographs of Old Lyme establishments, landscapes, and scenes dating back to the beginning of the twentieth century.

Each calendar month is generously sponsored by a different community organization and includes the dates of their events throughout the year. The participating sponsors for this year's calendar are: The Town of Old Lyme, The Chocolate Shell, Old Lyme-Phoebe Griffin Noyes Library, Lyme Art Association, The Old Lyme Marina, The South Lyme Chapel, The Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts, The Bowerbird, The Sound View Beach Association, Black Hall Outfitters, Florence Griswold Museum, and the Bee & Thistle Inn. The 2017 Now & Then, Old Lyme Community Calendar was designed by James Meehan and edited by Alison Mitchell. Michaelle Pearson was the copy editor, Ned Farman was the associate copy editor.

The calendar may also be purchased at the Florence Griswold Museum Shop, The Bowerbird, and at the Old Lyme Historical Society at 55 Lyme Street.
