New Book Project

I'm afraid I got sidetracked by a move to Poestenkill and a change of jobs. With my deepest apologies for the long gap in posting, here's my new blog project:

The Billiard Table Makers
The Victorian-era billiard business is an interesting chapter in the industrial history of Syracuse and New York State. I'm researching the billiard table makers – the artists and craftsmen who were also entrepreneurs and innovators, manufacturing a unique product that was both ornamental and functional. 

The plan is to write a book that will be an "industrial biography" of the Syracuse Billiard Table Makers.
