Greetings from Brookside and Waldo: The Neighborhood Collection

RSVP @ https://www.kclibrary.org/rsvp/19838

Crazy Mike will be there holding a Meetup sign.

Named for a prominent turn-of-the-century business mogul, the area around Jacob Loose Park is still one of Kansas City’s most beautiful areas largely due to the early planning of developer Jesse Clyde Nichols. Travel back in time and see the area through these views on century-old, hand-colored postcards.

Local historian and postcard collector Michael Bushnell presents a series of postcard tours of Kansas City neighborhoods. Bushnell is publisher of The Northeast News, a weekly community newspaper that serves the Historic Northeast area of Kansas City. He is also the author of Historic Postcards of Old Kansas City.

These talks complement the exhibit Greetings from Kansas City: A Postcard View of a Midwest Metropolis,[masked],          on display at the Central Library through May 31, 2013

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
