Wall Hangings

Most of the items in this list were inventoried by Lowell Skoog in 2009 before The Mountaineers moved from the 3rd Avenue (Lower Queen Anne) clubhouse to Magnuson Park. Since then, these items were moved several times and ended up in the archives storage room at Magnuson Park.

On Sept 2-3, 2021, Lowell Skoog moved all the wall hangings not being displayed at Magnuson Park out of the archives room to his home (a few miles north of the program center).

This inventory was updated on 9/4/2021 to reflect the current status of the collection. (Most of these items have not actually been tagged with the catalog IDs listed here so don't take the catalog ID's too seriously.)

Note: When the wall hangings were moved to Lowell's house in Sept 2021, many more items were uncovered than are shown in the table below. Small images of these items have been copied to the following Dropbox folder. Lowell has taken high resolution photos of these items (15 Mpix+) that will be preserved in Mountaineer digital collections, in case we decide to dispense any of the physical items: Click here for small images of these additional wall hangings.
