Albuquerque
Talk by Nancy Tucker
Albuquerque?  Funny?  Ha!  You betcha!  Comic postcards by Albuquerque publishers.  From the 1930s into the 1960s, Albuquerque postcard producers big and small took on the tourist market with humorous postcards filled with stereotyped images of cowboys, Indians and tourist dudes.  We’ll look at cards, funny or not, by Babcock & Borough, Standley-May, Ward Anderson Printing, Herbert Hyde and even Fred Harvey.  (No, not THAT Fred Harvey!). At Botts Hall Special Collections Library, 423 Central Ave NE (northwest corner of Edith).
