Great Hall Exhibit: “The Time of My Life”; Vintage Views of Western Massachusetts 10:00 am
Great Hall Exhibit: “The Time of My Life”; Vintage Views of Western Massachusetts @ Great Falls Discovery Center
Feb 16 @ 10:00 am – Apr 21 @ 4:00 pm
“Having the time of my life.” So wrote Bernice on a postcard sent to her “Ma” in the early 20th century—one among many cards from Memorial Hall Museum’s collection, now in the Great Hall. Enlarged postcard scenes take visitors on an imaginary road trip, with stops at Mount Tom, Mount Holyoke Summit House, Sugarloaf, Turners Falls, Greenfield, Shelburne Falls and the Mohawk Trail. Sit down and relax with reproduction postal souvenir albums, a hands-on stereoscope, and a Viewmaster with other area scenes that paint pictures of civic pride and new ideas about leisure and travel. Before cell phones and social media, the picture postcard reigned supreme. Sponsored by Memorial Hall Museum.
