Postcards from the Past

Today we have so many ways to communicate whether it through emails, phone calls, text messages, Twitter and Facebook. Back in the early 1900s, people kept in touch with friends and family by sending letters and postcards like the one seen here. This postcard shows a group of women enjoying the cool Susquehanna River near the resort town of Pequea.

If you’re a history buff or enjoy old snapshots, come join us as we view a collection of postcards from the early 1900s from 7-8 p.m. on August 25 at the Holtwood Environmental Center.

    Hi Karen,
    Looking forward to the Pequea as a resort presentation….did you get any postcards from Brad Detweiler (Lake Aldred Ter.).

    He used to have a large collection.

      Hello Faith, Karen is out of the office for a few days but I’ll pass this note along and have her get back to you. Thanks!

      The postcards all belong to Mark Arbogast, a PPL retiree.
