Portland in Postcards

 

Saturday November 6, 2010 10:00 am - 11:30 am

 

Tickets: $18 [AHC Members: $13]

 

Beginning in the early 20th century, postcards rapidly developed into a hugely popular tourist souvenir item and postcards of the "City of Roses" were no exception. Nothing shows off Portland's rich architectural heritage like vintage postcards. They can offer glimpses into the past of familiar places and those long since forgotten. Their often colorful imagery also gives insight into the lives of previous generations of Portlanders and visitors to the city.
