Join our annual coloring event by picking up your colored pencils, crayons, or markers to embellish images from the Richardson-Sloane Special Collections Center! During #ColorOurCollections week (and after), the coloring sheet will be available to download here from the Richardson-Sloane Special Collections Center’s blog, Primary Selections from Special Collections.

This year we will be our fourth volume! We have selected images depicting the unique architecture found in Davenport from texts such as Davenport Illustrated: Saengerfest Souvenir, July 1898, Come to Davenport: April Second, Third and Fourth, Nineteen Hundred and Eight, 1867 Root’s Davenport City Directory, Davenport City Directory for 1863, and Davenport, the Eastern Gateway of Iowa.

We want to see your artwork!. Post pictures of your coloring skills on the Richardson-Sloane Special Collection Center’s Instagram, @davenportspecialcollections, or our Facebook page.
