Historical Society Program - Feb. 24

The Best Town in the World:  Touring Yellow Springs 100 Years Ago by Postcard

Dave Neuhardt will lead us on a graphic tour of Yellow Springs just after the turn of the 20th Century using 100 year old postcards to illustrate what looks the same---and what is different---about our own and its surroundings.  A picture postcard craze swept the nation as multiple daily mail deliveries encouraged use of the cards as a quick and easy means of communication—leaving us today with an unparalleled illustrated view of just how our town looked at the time. The program will be held in the Senior Center Great Room Sunday, February 24 at 2:00 p.m.
