Grab a balloon, grab a map and come along on a walk where we will explore the somewhat shared and connected industrial Revolution histories of land, waterways and activists between Syracuse, NY, USA and Manchester, England, UK. Incredible, you say? Follow a map of Syracuse, NY through Manchester, UK to realize the connections. Make sure to bring your clear balloon, blow it up and use it as a looking glass throughout the walk. How so? Stop and pose in front of a Syracuse monument, historical site, architectural landmark, a celebratory or a paranormal place with the balloon in front of the site (please see photo below). As you do, snap a pic or more and send them to me to post at The People’s Museum and in Syracuse, NY where I will be walking a map of Manchester in Syracuse. I promise to send photos to you in Manchester. At the end of the walk through Syracuse, you can pin up your balloon around a yellow card on the wall in the Museum, loiter and make a song. Balloons and maps will be provided!
