Ethel Zahler maintained a large collection of assorted memorabilia and other items. These were stored in her basement, where they occupied most of the existing space. In the years following retirement, she would spend many hours sorting and arranging her collection, and when a visitor dropped in, they always were offered a tour. Ethel's basement became a must see for friends and visitors and Ethel would occasionally issue special invitations, represented by this ticket. The pictures below give a small glimpse of Ethel's Treasures.
