Wish You Were Here: a common refrain found on postcards from days gone by. Sending a postcard was, and still is, a cost-effective way of keeping in contact with friends and family., and today, deltiology, the study and collection of postcards, is a popular hobby. On November 15, the Oshawa Historical Society is welcoming George Sachs from the Toronto Postcard Club for Postcards 101, a talk on the history of postcards and interesting information for prospective or beginning collectors. To complement the talk, we will bring select postcards from the Oshawa Archives collection, highlighting Oshawa’s past.

The Speaker Series will be held at the McLaughlin Branch of the Oshawa Public Library, located at 65 Bagot Street, Oshawa.
