The Bristol Historical Society, 98 Summer Street, is hosting the 32th Annual Postcard Show from 1 pm to 4 pm, on Sunday, July 23th.

The postcard show was first presented at the Terry Homestead by the Bristol Historical Society members, Pete and Marion Maroon. It is now continued under the coordination of BHS Past -President Tom Dickau.

Five or six local or regional postcard dealers/collectors will be present to sell, buy or trade postcards as well as other Bristol memorabilia.

The Bristol Historical Society will have a table set up to sell excess Bristol memorabilia to assist the organization. Bring your postcards, other paper collectibles for appraisal. There will be a nominal fee associated with this service.

A video presentation of over 300 vintage postcards of Bristol and Forestville will run throughout the afternoon. Take a walk back in the history with an enjoyable afternoon of reminiscing and conversation.

Light refreshments will be available in the air conditioned facility at BHS.

Although admission is free, donations are gladly accepted to assist BHS in its mission.

Contact Tom Dickau for further information or questions at 860 582 1537.
