• All in-person club meetings are POSTPONED for the forseeable future.

    Instead, we have moved to a video format.  We will try to keep our events calendar up-to-date but best to check with the organizer to confirm the status in advance.  Become a TPC Facebook friend to stay connected with us!

     

Club Meetings

For the time being, we are moving to an electronic meeting format for TPC Members. As we become more accomplished at this, we may open our discussions to visitors. 

In addition to our new video meeting format, membership in the TPC includes ‘CARD TALK’,  a 24 page ‘magazine’ of stories about vintage postcards contributed by members.  Stories about the history that postcards depict, about the publishers and photographers who created them, stories about the postcards from the ‘Golden Age’ of postcards, and more. Many postcard images are reproduced in these articles. ‘Card Talk‘ is published annually each Spring, Fall and Winter (April, August and November). You can find out more about how to become a TPC member here.

Our 2020 Fall/Winter line-up is as follows:
