tom jacksonpostcard from the past

Are the days of sending picture postcards over? For anyone with an interest in the details of how we used to live, or in eavesdropping on other people’s conversations, these postcard messages on faded views are funny, illuminating and addictive. In a talk illustrated with suspiciously blue skies, enormous good luck cats and a squadron of one-eared donkeys, Tom will draw on his huge collection of everyday postcards to present the oddest, funniest, most touching messages. We’ll discover hidden messages, cries for help, threats and mysteries and consider whether or not it’s too late to revive the art of postcard writing.
