Were fans of postcards H+H even held a Summer of Postcard Love in 2012 exchanging them by snail mail. So we were delighted to hear about the Kansas City Public Librarys Greetings from Kansas City exhibit starting this month.

The Kansas City Star
The exhibit is comprised of 200 locally made postcards in the librarys collection from the 30s and 40s divided into three categories:
Business and Industry: factories, the stockyards, trains and trolleys
History and Heritage: local monuments, cityscapes, the American Royal
Entertainment, Arts and Culture: museums, theaters, parks and boulevards
Eli Paul, manager of the librarys Missouri Valley Special Collections, will tell the stories behind the postcards in a reception and program 6 p.m. Jan. 30 at Central Library, 14 W. 10th St. Reservations can be made at KCLibrary.org or by calling 816-701-3407.
