This summer we created a series of notecard tutorials inspired by historic cards in the collection. These cards are now on display at the museum!
The #Stayconnected series celebrates the importance of keeping in touch. COVID-19 challenged many of us to find new ways to stay connected with friends and family. From delivering groceries to neighbours and hosting birthday parties on zoom, the last few months have inspired people to find creative ways to spread joy and support. Have you found any fun ways to connect with people close to you? Share in the comments 🙂
These historic cards remind us that people have always found ways to send love and encouragement in troubling times, spread celebratory news and even share a joke in the mail. The display includes birthday messages, photo collages with larger than life fish, views of main street Minden and touching cards from the First World War.
Many of the postcards in the collection were never sent and we’re left wondering who they might have been intended for. These blank postcards are a reminder that there’s no better time than the present to send that letter, pick up the phone or stop in for a quick hello.
What are your favourite ways to keep in touch?
