Akron Postcard Club: "Tour" Akron Through Postcards
Let’s tour Akron together through vintage postcards!
Join the Akron Postcard Club for a “tour” of Akron through the years thanks to the David P. Campbell Postcard Collection. Travel Main Street when streetcars ruled the road, check out the horse & buggy walking Howard Street, and catch the crowds down over at Springfield Lake! We’ll see private homes, schools, churches, and even cemeteries from yesteryear – be prepared for memories!
The Akron Postcard Club is hosted by the Cummings Center’s Institute for Human Science and Culture. This free club invites postcard enthusiasts from Northeast Ohio to gather once a month to explore all things postcards. Each meeting focuses on a different theme: history of postcards, artistic examples, unique materials, interesting messages, and more!
All are welcome, no experience necessary.
When: Wednesday, September 29th from 6:00-7:00pm ET.
