Sedona AZ (March 23, 2021) – The Sedona Heritage Museum has posted the next in their popular Living History speaker series on their YouTube channel.
This month’s program focuses on the colorful and sometimes funny vintage postcards that have promoted Arizona to the world and commemorated millions of visits to the Grand Canyon State.
Sedona author and this month’s presenter, Victoria Clark, has collected Arizona postcards for most of her life and served as president of the Phoenix Postcard Club. “I’m so happy to have this opportunity to share some of my Arizona postcard collection and the information about the images and their photographers.” Said Clark.
This presentation will take viewers from the days of farming, mining and ranching, to the early tourist attractions and scenic beauty of Arizona. The postcard images, printing processes and famous photographers of the day reflect the changes in the state and the demands of the marketplace. Clark will explain how to date postcards, and particular images or photographers to watch for.
Victoria Clark is from Tucson, but retired to Sedona 20 years ago, when she began writing and blogging about Arizona’s colorful history. She has now written three books on Arizona’s history and one book of short stories. Clark’s latest book, “Postcards of Sedona & Oak Creek Canyon”, features an extensive collection of vintage postcards of red rock country.
To view the program, visit the Museum’s website at SedonaMuseum.org/livinghistory/ and the program titles, including this latest program, will be visible. More programs will be announced as they become available. These presentations are free.
