MARCH

 

  Club Meeting at Fort Mason Center 

  

Mar  23, Saturday, CLUB MEETING - San Francisco Bay Area Post Card Club from 11 AM to 3 PM at Fort Mason Center, San Francisco in Building C, Room C-230.  The club meeting will be called to order at 1:30 PM and the program will follow.  Laura Ackley will speak on "State of the Art 1915: New Technology at the Panama-Pacific International Exposition (PPIE)."  One of the main purposes of world’s fairs always has been to introduce the "latest and greatest" to the public.  At the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition, no exhibit could be considered for an award of merit unless it was based on a product or process new since the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition.  PPIE Historian Laura Ackley will discuss a variety of the new technologies displayed at the fair.  Ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous, these exhibits may elicit warm nostalgia, amazement, laughter and even a wince or two.  We will sample wonders from many areas of the fair, including the Palace of Food Products, the Palace of Liberal Arts, The Palace of Horticulture, and the Joy Zone.  We’ll take a ride on the Strauss Aeroscope, visit the Panama Canal in miniature and walk through a model mine before learning the Secrets of Mental Telepathy.  There is an hourly fee for parking within the gates of Fort Mason Center, but upper Fort Mason (enter at Franklin and Bay Streets) and parking spaces along the Marina Green are free.  Parking can be difficult, so come early and enjoy the Book Bay (the Friends of the San Francisco Library store), Goody Cafe, Maritime Library, Greens Restaurant or amble through the community garden, because there’s plenty to see and do.  We often gather before 11 AM at the picnic tables or in the exhibit area in Bldg. B.  More info on directions, GPS, parking, maps, etc.

 

 

APRIL

 

Apr  20, Saturday, CLUB MEETING - San Francisco Bay Area Post Card Club from 11 AM to 3 PM at Fort Mason Center, San Francisco in Building C, Room C-210.  The club meeting will be called to order at 1:30 PM and the program will follow.  The April program will feature Ruth Stotter, who will speak on "Postcards of Children Playing Games Around the World."  Traditions get modified with time.  Do you remember when women wore hats and gloves when they went to San Francisco? And, when men wore suits, ties and hats to the office?  Chances are the kids in your neighborhood don’t play the games you played as a kid (kick-the-can, sardines, I-will-draw-the-frying-pan and other variants of hide-and-seek).  Ruth will document children’s games played around the world before the days of video games and computers.  There is an hourly fee for parking within the gates of Fort Mason Center, but upper Fort Mason (enter at Franklin and Bay Streets) and parking spaces along the Marina Green are free.  Parking can be difficult, so come early and enjoy the Book Bay (the Friends of the San Francisco Library store), Goody Cafe, Maritime Library, Greens Restaurant or amble through the community garden, because there’s plenty to see and do.  We often gather before 11 AM at the picnic tables or in the exhibit area in Bldg. B.  More info on directions, GPS, parking, maps, etc.
