Additional information about Ed Howard:
Ed Howard has 35 years of experience in the antiques business. His hobby, like those of his ancestors, is history. He remembers with fondness the many talks given for the Essex Historical Society by Lydia Roberts of Gloucester. She discussed the interesting and little known tools, inventions, gadgets etc. that she found in her travels as an antiques dealer. The evenings were always fun, especially with the audience participation Lydia so loved. Ed is bringing back just such an evening on April 10th.
