I have collected various things throughout my life. About three years ago, a coworker, knowing I lived in Newark gave me two beer cans from Newark’s famous Ballantine brewery. From that humble beginning a collection was born. I now have close to 900 items in my collection .I began to think that others might also have an interest in seeing the collection if I found a way to make it accessible. This website is being created to provide that access. This is not the work of a historian, which I am not. Rather it will be a forum to share the various items I have collected with the widest possible audience. Hopefully, in time, this will become a way for an armchair historian such as myself to connect with like-minded people.
