Hudson River Brick Makers - Film Screening and Discussion with Film Maker
THIS PROGRAM IS SOLD OUT. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

The Historical Society of Rockland County Invites You to Join Us for
"Hudson River Brick Makers"

A Film Screening and Discussion with filmmaker
Jim Ormond

When: Thursday, April 21, 2016; 7:30 sharp

Where: HSRC, 20 Zukor Road, New City

Admission: $FREE (reservations required)

In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the Hudson River Valley was the undisputed world capital of brick making. At its height, more than 130 brick yards teemed with workers from Haverstraw to Albany. The growth of the brick-yards coincided with the explosive growth of building in New York City.

This 30-minute film demonstrates how bricks, so ubiquitous in New York City that they go unnoticed, are a prism through which we can view larger issues including immigration, industrial innovation, labor relations and urban planning. The last Hudson River Brick Yard closed in 2002, ending three and a half centuries of brick making on the Hudson.

About the filmmaker:  Jim Ormond started  "Local History Channel" in 2012.  Since then, his local history segments have been seen on Cablevision in the New York Metropolitan area and, more recently, on PBS. Ormond is a former reporter and print editor and together with a talented team of actors, narrators, researchers, videographers and video editors he effectively tells important stories about local history.

Please join us at the HSRC's History Center, 20 Zukor Road, New City, NY, for this special evening film screening and discussion. As a courtesy to the speaker, please arrive early to avoid interruptions. The event will begin promptly at 7:30. Latecomers with reservations may forfeit their seats. Walk-ins will be admitted only if space permits.
