Check out the Archives Caption Contest!
October is Ohio Archives Month, and as part of our celebration at the Ohio History Connection, we are holding a caption contest!
Archives have a reputation for being filled with large tomes and politicians’ papers ready for serious historic research. Most archives do have these things, but we’ve also got some great collections documenting the fun (and sometimes weird) things that people in the past did in their everyday lives.
To celebrate this light hearted side of the archives, we are hosting a caption contest. Let us know, what do you think is going on in the picture below?
Submit your answer in the comments below, or feel free to email your submission to [email protected] We can’t wait to share some of our favorite entries, and eventually crown a winner of our inaugural Archives Month Caption Contest!
