Add this Event to Calendar 07/18/2019 06:30 PM 07/18/2019 07:30 PM Having a Fine Time in Manchester: Vintage Post Cards and Local History

Post cards have many a story to tell about the built landscape, disastrous events such as fires or floods, daily folk customs, and the identity of place. During the golden age of the post card, before telephones, personal messages could contain anything from the mundane, "Having a fine time, wish you were here..." to more profound reflections on family life or colorful portraits of towns and cities from the perspective of newly-landed immigrants.  Presented bh Robet Perreault.  Sponsored by the NH Humanities Council and the Friends of the Meredith Library.  Light refreshments served.
