“Energy for a Better Tomorrow” (1979)
Welcome to PSNH’s table display at the ’79 Home Builders Association of New Hampshire (HBANH) Home Show!
Unlike home shows from the early days, which showcased home appliances—like washing machines, refrigerators, and vacuum cleaners (oh, the wonders of electricity!)—this one focused more on how energy is produced and delivered. On display are several pieces of equipment and tools-of-the-trade. Oh, and there’s a mannequin dressed up as a lineman…
Who’s inside the famous Reddy Kilowatt costume with a handful of lollipops? According to retiree Brad Parkhurst, it’s probably fellow-employee Denise Latulipe.
The HBANH is now the Home Builders & Remodelers Association of New Hampshire, and PSNH is still a sponsor of its annual Home Show, which is typically held in March. Stop by our booth at next year’s event! (No lineman mannequins, we promise.)
Special thanks to Donna Keeley and Brad & Roxanne Parkhurst for shedding some light on this one.
