This charming glimpse into Two Rivers' past is a unique blend of photographs selected from the collection of Hubert R. Wentorf (circa late 1800s to mid 1950s), and vintage product catalogs from the Fisher-Hamilton Company, a major employer in Two Rivers since 1880 (now known as Thermo-Fisher Scientific).
Mr. Wentorf was both a local photographer and a collector of historical photographs. His images focus on local landmarks, industries and institutions, and people going about daily life in Two Rivers. Many of his photographs include group shots of organizations and civic groups. The Fisher-Hamilton catalogs document the products manufactured by the company and the evolution of these products (and the company itself) over the years. In addition to their historical interest and nostalgic appeal, these catalogs frequently serve as a valuable resource to antique hunters as they attempt to identify their treasures.
