Swarthmorean Summer Travel Series
“No photos,” said the signs posted everywhere at the Antiques Roadshow. As an avid photographer, I felt as if I had just sat down for a long-anticipated feast only to be told that eating was forbidden. But the atmosphere was so festive that I could almost forget my deprivation on this beautiful June day.
Though the lines were long, even at our 7:30 a.m. entrance time, the mood was very jolly. We were all lottery winners, my husband and I and about 3,000 others using our free tickets to join in this very long day. Everyone was happy to be at the Roadshow, even the harried, unpaid appraisers, many familiar to us from our years of viewing PBS’s most-watched ongoing TV series.
