Santa came for real in early December when Thomas Gray donated FORTY-SEVEN postcards to our growing collection.  Framed beautifully in thematic groups and including a number Elaine Henson declared “rare,” they add significantly in our ability to provide iconic images to our visitors and researchers.

At the January Board meeting, board members unanimously accepted this generous donation and extended our most sincere appreciation to Thomas, a life-time member of the Society from Winston-Salem.

For now they’ve been hung on the back wall of the Library, the only large space we currently have to display them together in all their technicolor glory. The next time you’re at the History Center, take some time to look in the Library.  You’ll be transported in time by these glorious bits of histor.
