Object Name Banner
Description A banner that was created by the Community Relations and Public Programming Coordinator, Kelley Rae Unger, for the Peabody Centennial Parade that took place in November of 2016. The parade was to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of Peabody incorporating as city.

Two banners were created. One was weatherized and the other was not. Work started on the banner in July of 2016. Kelley Rae Unger requested a current photo of the Library by archivist Erik R. Bauer who provided a photo of the Library that was taken sometime in the early 2000s. From there Kelley; Martha Holden, library director; and Hal Reynolds, the printer, worked to create the banner that would be used in the parade. This banner is not the one that was in the parade. The parade banner was a heavier vinyl.

The banner was meant to look like the one that was made for when Geroge Peabody retunred to South Danvers in 1868. The main difference between the two banners is that the 1868 banner is asymmetrical while the 2016 banner is symmetrical. See record 2003.36.1 for more information.
