Presenter: Larry Spanbauer

A Look Back at Oshkosh's Cigar Industry presented by Larry Spanbauer of the Oshkosh Memorabilia Club. Larry shares the history of the cigar industry in Oshkosh--including the more than 100 manufacturers that called our city home. He'll bring in dozens of cigar boxes from his collection--some dating back to the turn of the century--along with molds, business tokens, signage and other memorabilia. He'll also talk about his upcoming book.

Larry encourages others who have photos or other items from the cigar industry to bring them to the event.

This program will be held in the Oshkosh Public Library Lower Level Meeting Rooms.
