We Want Kent Postcards

The Kent Historical Society is beginning to collect old Kent Postcards for a new book. This book will depict the many postcards that were sold in the many retail stores that graced our streets from the 19th century up to the present day.
If you have any old postcards lying around we would like to see them and if they fit the bill we would like to scan them for use in our book. After scanning we will of course return them to you. Your reward will be your name in the book. Oh yes, the book will be written by our own Roger Di Paolo.
We are open every Friday and Saturday from 9 to 2. If you cannot make it at those times give us a call and make arrangements to bring them by.

If you’re looking for a gift or interested in Kent history take a look at our online bookstore. We may have what you want.
