May 15, 2012 (5:45 pm-6:45 pm)
Library Company of Philadelphia
Join us for a talk by Wendy
Woloson, guest curator of our current exhibition “Capitalism by Gaslight”. Dr. Woloson
will discuss legitimate but marginal ways that people earned money in
the 19th century and will focus on seamstresses, rag pickers, beggars,
dog catchers, newsboys, and street sellers.
