Monday Evening Musical program focuses on historic Norwich

NORWICH – On Monday, April 5, at 7:30 p.m., the Monday Evening Musical Club will host Henry Drexler in a slide show, “Historical Musical Norwich.” Henry, besides being an artist of some fame in the area (he has a show, “Windmill Country,” running at the Gallery at the Council of the Arts through April 23), has a collection of hundreds of postcards from Norwich and Chenango County, which he has photographed onto slides. Many of these postcards date from the turn of the twentieth century, and depict a way of life that is now a distant memory.
