Community Gallery Tour Thursday . May 8 . 7:30 PM
The Muckenthaler Cultural Center presents an exhibition of hundreds of vintage postcards capturing the essence of Europe from the 1910s and 20s.Los Angeles pioneer Jonathan Slauson's granddaughter Marion Smith and great-granddaughter Jacqueline Smith traveled extensively throughout the European continent before the age of trans-Atlantic jets and high-speed trains.

From the northern islands of Scotland to southern Italy, from Spain to Hungary, they each collected hundreds of postcards of their travels, carefully preserving them in leather bound volumes. A century later, these postcards provide intriguing glimpses of a bygone time. Images of zeppelins and luxury ocean liners show us how they traveled, while others preserve views of buildings and even cities later ravaged or destroyed in World War II.
This exhibition is made possible with the support of Popular Community Bank.
