The Tall-Tale Postcards of Dad Martin and Pop Conard

Oct 19, 2014 2pm

Harvey County Historical Museum, 203 Main, Newton, KS
The Tall-Tale Postcards of Dad Martin and Pop Conard. William H. “Dad” Martin and Frank D. “Pop” Conard were pioneers of the postcard printing business who found inspiration in the trials and tribulations of Kansas culture. From the early 1900s through 1940, their carefully crafted images pushed the medium of photography, promoting Kansas as a land where ears of corn grew so large that farmers used logging saws to slice them and monster grasshoppers could stop a train in its tracks. Presented by Erika Nelson thanks to the Kansas Humanities Council Speakers Bureau. Free.
