This Wild Country: Postcards from the Yukon Archives Collection

Opening reception: Friday, July 5, 5-7pm
On view:
July to October 2019

This interactive display, This Wild Country: Postcards from the Yukon Archives Collection recognizes the evolution of postcards in the Yukon and their role in the documentation of Yukon’s history, particularly communications. The exhibit includes fascinating stories of some of the people who sent and received postcards from Yukon during the past one hundred or so years. Through the interactive component, visitors can be photographed in a postcard photo booth setting with an historic backdrop. This component will be available to the public over the summer. Reprint postcards will also be available for distribution at various venues throughout Yukon including visitor centres.
