To start the evening, museum Curator Dorothy Hogan-Schofield gave a talk on turn of the century post cards. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, the hand written penny post card was a very popular method of communication. Remember, this was a time before home telephones, let alone the ubiquitous cell phone. Today, we instantaneously communicate by calling or texting. In those days, you hand wrote a quick message on a post card to let someone know where you were and that you were thinking of them. If you had more time, you would write a more detailed letter. Today that would most likely be an email. Oh, the lost art of writing a letter.
