The short movie “Remembering Days Gone By Through the Lens of Porter Thayer” will be shown at the annual meeting of the Halifax Historical Society Friday, July 10 at the Halifax Community Hall.

The meeting will be preceded by a potluck dinner at 6 p.m. and a short business meeting at 7. Everyone, member or nonmember, is invited to attend.

Thayer was an early 20th century farmer and photographer (1882-1972) who took photographs in Windham County, including Halifax, using glass plate negatives. George Thayer of Halifax is his grandson and plans to be at the meeting.

The movie was made in the late 1970s by Dummerston residents Allen and Sally Seymour and includes comments by six people who remembered those times

If there’s time, a movie called “Root, Hog, or Die,” about subsistence farming in Bernardston and nearby towns will also be shown.
