Postcard Exhibit

The Boston Public Library had on display from January to March an exhibit called “Greetings from Boston,” which featured old postcards of Boston.

““Greetings from Boston” was inspired by several travel writers who recently gave lectures at the library and the vintage travel poster exhibit that was displayed last year. Prindle said the exhibit was so popular that the staff wanted to showcase a similar display.

In the past, the library has put vintage postcards on display, but they were not showcased at this scale.

“I remember a few years ago they put out they postcards and they were kind of just displayed in plastic but this is more modern,” said Gary Faulkner, a 52-year-old chef of Woburn.”

I wish more places had permanent exhibits of postcards like this. What a valuable resource for natives and tourists!
