Map Side Display Installation
Note: Some of the map side displays shown were installed using push pins and NOT rubber cement. I am still in the process of going back and redoing ALL of the map side displays on all six kiosks with rubber cement and NOT push pins.
Bradley Palmer: (April 28, 2011 work)
Today I installed ALL of the final content that will go in the map side display of the Bradley Palmer kiosk. All of the material was properly set in place with rubber cement. Both sides of the window were also cleaned with windex, which is what I have been doing for all of the kiosk windows. The map side of this kiosk is now completely done.
High Street: (April 28, 2o11 work)
I was lucky enough to get everything up right before the rain set in. ALL of the final content was mounted properly with rubber cement in this kiosk. The map display side of this kiosk is now completely done.
Permanent Display Installation
Installation of permanent displays at the High Street, Rowley Bridge Road, and Thunder Bridge kiosks. Note: The Maple Street display will be installed on Saturday, April 2. We were unable to install this weekend because of high winds and cold weather.

Brass Name Plate Engraving
Brass plate name tags were engraved for each kiosk, one to each. Each tag lists the name of the researcher and designer of the respective permanent display. The brass plates were engraved in my basement on a homemade engraver my father has been constructing for ten years. The final photo shows the finished products.

Staining the Bradley Palmer Kiosk
Upon request from the state Department of Conservation and Recreation (the landowner for the Bradley Palmer kiosk), I went out and stained all parts of the kiosk (except for the shingles of the roof and the inside of the roof (already painted hunters green)) a DCR standard brown. I think the kiosk looks great in brown, however I will keep the other five kiosks the natural wood color.
