The Garden City Postcard Project

The Garden City Postcard Project displayed postcards dating across the history of Letchworth, examining how a century’s worth of visitors chose to remember the town.

The exhibition centred on a selection of twentieth century souvenir postcards from the Garden City Collection. Alongside this, a series of new postcards of Letchworth by local artists were displayed.
