from ..." Series
Imagine holding a group of postcards in your
hand. Each--through an image and a personal note--captures a moment
frozen in time. The first postcard is dated 1918. A soldier, just
returned from the Great War, has visited the New York City Aquarium
on the tip of Manhattan. He writes to tell his sweetheart about
the excitement of the big city. On another card, an Iowa businessman
tells his wife and children that he has never seen anything quite
like the 1933 Chicago World’s Fair. On yet another is the thoughtful
message of a grandmother informing her children that on October
14, 1949 at 5:35 PM, she arrived safely at her destination, the
lovely Raleigh Hotel in Miami Beach.
Now imagine that you hold a book of beautiful
postcards. All are from the same city, but they span a complete
century. Now your hand holds more than a few moments in time. It
holds a story told in words and images.
