"Postcards from the Shore….."

"Wish you were here…." were the postcard words of vacationers of yesteryear, during their summers of travel to shoreline resorts.  But postcards reflected much more than just the words of a tourist…. Postcards captured a historic  pictorial of the times, featuring iconic landmarks, commemorative events, and landscapes that have greatly changed through the years.  Come see nearly 100 historic postcards  highlighted from the Society’s collection.

On Exhibit at the Brookwood Hall Historical Exhibit Room
Brookwood Hall
50 Irish Lane
East Islip, NY
Museum Hours: Thurs/Fri. 10am to 4pm, Sat./Sun. 12pm-4pm

This is a free event, open to the public
Presented by The Historical Society of Islip Hamlet.
