John will provide a history of postcard collecting, also known as deltiology, and share methods for dating postcards of all sorts, even those without postmark indicia. Proper archival storage methods and current trends in the postcard collecting world will also be shared.
John will draw from his extensive collection to bring to life the tricks of the trade and most examples will focus on postcards from the local area, providing a unique perspective on the history of Stamford and the surrounding region.
Following the program, John will have local vintage and antique postcards and a variety of archival supplies available for purchase.
The program is free and open to all! Please call the Stamford Library at (607) 652-5001 for more information.
