This heavily illustrated lecture discusses the role of postcards in understanding Maine’s rich history and culture during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Focusing on notable landmarks, landscapes and seascapes, as well as rural and industrial life, Dr. Libby Bischof will explore the role of postcards in creating a tangible sense of place for both residents and visitors.
Lecture is free and open to the public. Donations gratefully accepted.
