    150 Years of Postcards

    Postcard Exhibit

    Introduced in 1869 as a way of sending a simple message, postcards quickly evolved beyond their practical purpose to become the universal souvenier that brightens everyone's mailboxes. Discover the history of postcards, and join us in celebrating their anniversary this year.

    West Regional Library will feature a display of postcards, from the Gulf Coast to abroad! Featured postcards are courtesy of the Local History and Genealogy Division and supernumerary Lynda Crane.

    Be sure to visit the collection on the Digital Archives at digital.mobilepubliclibrary.org/collections/show/15 .

    For more information, please call 251-340-8561.
