Postcard Tradition in SF

Oscar Wilde once said, “It’s an odd thing, but anyone who disappears is said to be seen in San Francisco.”  Perhaps the same can be said for postcards.  Many a rare find can be discovered by pouring through the collections of members of the San Francisco Bay Area Post Card Club.  These are our nations true historians. Not only do they collect snapshots of memorable points in time, but they brilliantly seek to find that ‘next angle’.  In this post, meet a collector who uncovers a secret about the first ferris wheel at the 1893 Columbian Exposition in Chicago.  The only thing I share with this group is rank authority in the search engines for the keywords ‘postcards’ and ‘San Francisco’.  But from my video postcards to their cover cards, here’s my tribute to an amazing group of sleuths in our local chapter.  I had the good fortune of meeting them when they gathered for their November meeting.
