Don’t miss this lecture by Katherine Hamilton-Smith, the founding curator of the Teich Postcard Archives now at the Newberry Library.  She will discuss the documentary power and significance of picture postcards as well as the role Illinois played in their development.  Bring postcards from your own personal collection to the program and Ms. Hamilton-Smith can comment on their value and rarity.  While at the Museum, check out the current exhibit “Wilmette in Photographs, 1850-1950” with real photo postcards from the early 20th century.
