The design goal was to make an attractive display island which would double as a sturdy shipping case.

There are two brochure holders mounted on the front of the legs holding handouts for the public. One holder has a brochure telling the story of the photograph. The other holder has our EFR Membership brochure.

Click on the pictures to see a pdf of each brochure.
Our Master Builder, Lowell VanHorn, accomplished this by using oak reinforced plywood.

Some of the display's features are:
  • The entire case with picture weighs less than 100 pounds.
  • No special tools are required to be used to unpack and assemble the unit.
  • Several flush handles are built into the box so that one or two people can carry it.
  • The entire unit can be unpacked and set up in 15 minutes by one person.
  • The photograph is protected by soft foam and rigid foam.
  • Two brochure holders are mounted in the legs.
  • Extra brochures may be carried in a special box inside the shipping box.
  • The photograph is locked onto the legs so that curious visitors can not cause it to fall off.
  • The whole shipping case has a large enough footprint so it won't tip over.
  • The two young lads in the pictures below are Dave Dunlavy's proteges and just assembled the unit.
