To call Dave a history buff is an understatement. “I’m here with my latest treasure,” he says each time he stops in with a new project. As a treasure hunter, Dave has researched and collected the historical postcards, artifacts, and photographs of the City of Red Wing for many years.
As a retiree of the Northern States Power Co., Dave is a fan of the old electricity mascot, “Reddy Kilowatt.” He boasts and extensive collection of historic media, mementos, and relics.
Dave discovers many of his treasures on Ebay. When he finds something of interest, he conducts research at the Goodhue County Historical Society to ensure its legitimacy.
Dave has framed several newspaper ads, tintype photos, military certificates, and most recently a playbill from the Red Wing opera house, which burned down in 1882.
When it comes to framing, Dave is no frills–preservation is his game. His aim is to ensure history “will be around for future generations.” As museum quality framers, we are proud to help Dave achieve his goal.
