|The picture shows a view of this 1929 Berlin New Hampshire Centennial Engraved Brass Metal Award Plate. This brass plate had been attached to an award item at one time but we do not know what that award was. With the information on it, research could be done. Somewhere this important Centennial award is missing this identifying plate. It was nicely engraved in 1929. It is engraved as follows:|
PRESENTED TO ELI MARCOUX
MAYOR CITY COUNCIL AND OFFICIALS
FOR SERVICES AS GENERAL SECRETARY
BERLIN CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION
The engraved brass plate measures 2-5/16'' x 1-1/8''. It is in excellent condition as pictured. Below here, for reference, is some information on the Berlin, New Hampshire Centennial:
''By 1929 Berlin had reached it social, economic, and cultural apogee. In his January 1929 inaugural address Mayor McGee reminded the residents that the centennial celebration planned for July ''is a proud event in the history of Berlin'' and called on every person participating in the event to make it ''something that will attract the attention of the whole country to our wonderful city and the success which it has achieved in the past one hundred years.'' The centennial celebrated Berlin's history and culture and its social and economic achievements, painting a picture of ethnic harmony and economic optimism. Even labor unions, once very active in Berlin earlier in the decade, had all but disappeared by 1929 as the booming economy and resultant prosperity diminished workers' grievances and rendered labor unions increasingly irrelevant.''
