Postcard exhibit on the Thorne Rooms


Recommended Posts

We all go places and we often buy post cards of our favorite items, nothing new about that, I just got back from an venture with lots of them. Here is a exhibit containing old postcards compared with modern images of the Thorne Rooms.

One kind of fun thing buried in the National Museum of Toys and Miniatures collection is a about 1/40 scale miniature room made after the postcard of the Colonial room...... It's kind of folky and cute.... As I recall it came from the Blauer Collection.
