Milwaukee, WI -- It is easier to remember what was, when pictures to go along with the words. Susan Borri, writer and co-producer of MPTV's upcoming program on nostalgia is seeking photos, videos, home movies, and important artifacts that will help her tell the stories of Metro Milwaukee's past between 1945 and 1979. Her list of things now gone includes former buildings, restaurants, sports venues, and traditions no longer practiced. The program is tentatively expected to broadcast around the Thanksgiving holiday on WMVS/10.1 HD and simulcast on WMVT/36.2. The airdate will be determined in October.

To loan items to Borri, individuals should contact her directly at or at 414--750-8515.
