  Club Meeting at Fort Mason Center 

 

Jun  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-210.  The club meeting will be called to order at 1:00 PM and the program will follow.  John Freeman will speak on "The While-you-Wait Postcard Origins of Playland at the Beach."  In the early 20th century, brothers George and Leo Whitney settled in the state of Washington, where they learned the craft of photographing and producing “While-You-Wait” photo postcards. They worked in studios, but also plied their wares at Seattle’s Luna Park.  George relocated to San Francisco in 1922, and became involved in the Chutes-at-the-Beach amusement park.  He opened one "While-You-Wait" photo portrait studio at the beach and another on Market Street.  Brother Leo joined him in 1925.  John’s presentation will show the variety of the Whitney brothers' work, including a continuity of studio props.  The Whitney brothers are icons of Playland at the Beach, but they actually started with humorous postcards.  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.
