This virtual exhibit captures a time when advances in print journalism, an emerging advertising industry, and a growing concern for health and hygiene come together to produce a uniquely memorable brand identity.
This newest exhibit by the museum is available only online. It was developed out of necessity, but this will be one of many online exhibits to come long after the pandemic and the experience of social distancing.
In the ensuing months, the museum will be developing and piloting ways to bring the museum to visitors through exhibits like “Lifebuoy,” virtual tours, live online events, and new resources on its website. Extending HLM offerings to include a variety of online options will allow the museum to reach an audience beyond the South Shore, expand its educational programming, and bring the mission and rich history of the museum into a 21st century space.
As a nonprofit, HLM is able to preserve and share seldom-told stories of maritime history, the Hull community, and the legacy of Joshua James through grants, local business sponsorships, and donations.
