Vintage Tweets: Suffrage Era Postcards
Presented by Carol Crossed​

Sunday, May 1, 2022 2 to 4 pm

     Vintage Tweets is a poignant, amusing and insightful collection of 100 year old suffrage postcards, the social media of the late 19th and early 20th century. Author Carol Crossed’s entertaining narrative explores the meaning behind the illustrations which represent both domestic and political views of the woman’s vote.

     In 2006, Carol Crossed purchased and restored the birthplace of Susan B. Anthony in Adams, Massachusetts. The home is now a historic house museum honoring the work of this early suffragist.

 The Benedict family has resided in Henrietta for over 150 years. A generous donation from Janet and David Glocker in memory of Susan Benedict’s brother, William Archer, has made this presentation possible.
