#Folklorephoto Collection of Tools in Charlie Pearcey's Twine Store. How Do You Display Your Collection?
A collection of tools from the 1900's to 1950's is displayed on shelves in Charlie Pearcey's Twine Store. The photograph was taken in 2006 by Rita Colavincenzo while visiting Mr. Pearcey and the Twine Store in The Battery in St. John's. The visit included the collection of many other photographs as well as an interview with Charlie Pearcey about the twine store, his family, and the area.
Are you a collector? How do you display your collection?

We need contemporary voices speaking about what's happening in the Battery today as well as older memories, legends, tales, jokes...
Perhaps you stopped in to one of the twine stores down by the water, or had an interesting interaction during a solo sunrise walk. Perhaps you jog down Battery Road every morning on your way to the trail, or remember a time when the Battery was considered a rougher area of town.
Your story could be woven into a multi-layered acoustic documentary composition accessible through a gps-triggered smartphone app free for all users. Listeners will explore an immersive, user-controlled interactive experience while walking through the landscape. Cool, eh?
If you've got a story and would like your voice to be a part of this audio cartography, you can contact either myself, Annie McEwen (firstname.lastname@example.org), or Chris Brookes (email@example.com).
We look forward to hearing from you!
