Durham, NC – Durham County Library presents Historic Durham Postcard Tour with John Schelp on Saturday, October 6 at 2 p.m. at South Regional Library, 4505 S. Alston Ave., Durham, NC 27713. This event is free and open to the public.

Come hear John Schelp present his collection of vintage Durham postcards along with local Durham history! Durham’s cotton mills, tobacco factories, colleges, hospitals, City Hall, County Courthouse and earliest shopping districts are all located on the Main Street ‘ridge’. As a result, most of the postcards in this collection document buildings found on the ridge: from Duke and Erwin Mills in the West — to Durham Hosiery and Golden Belt in the East.

This program is sponsored by the Durham Library Foundation. For more information, call 919-560-0268 or visit DurhamCountyLibrary.org.
