The voters have spoken on the September version of the Archives treasures online poll. And they’ve selected the 1928 photo of the Capitol fire as the winner of this month’s poll on three of the items found in our State Archives. The old photo received 46 percent of the vote, topping a letter from the 19th century Pig War (30 percent) and the State Supreme Court files (24 percent).
Later this month we’ll unveil another round of Library jewels, showing three rare, way-cool or interesting items from our State Library.
