Regular Price is $40 per volume All Sales go to the Berkshire Carousel Inc.
BERKSHIRE MEMORIES VOLUME I
The first part of the book is about transportation in the Berkshires. The remainder of the book is the story section about places and people from the 1950s through 1970s with many rare pictures. Some historic events are included that we might have heard about as kids during those times.  Included are stories about people, amusement areas, restaurants, businesses, art works, mysterious events, and much more. (Soft cover with 288 pages and over 400 black and white photos.)
   The Author: Jim Shulman Pittsfield native, Jim Shulman, loved growing up in the Berkshires in the 1950s and 1960s and has been an amateur local historian and ephemera collector since then. Both volumes are one of Jim’s contributions to the Berkshire Carousel project that he and his wife, Jackie, founded. The goal of the project is to train volunteers on how to carve and paint carousel figures and  build a carousel in the Berkshires. It is a grassroots effort that has given participants a sense of pride in their community and an opportunity to create memories for future generations, much like the ones in this book. All income from the books goes to Berkshire Carousel, a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization.
